SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - A Scottsbluff-area man convicted of assaulting a woman has been sentenced to a year in jail, but will spend most of the time under house arrest.

KNEB-AM reports that 66-year-old Tommy Eubanks pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily injury in the January incident near Lake Alice.

Judge James Worden ordered Eubanks to serve three days in jail with credit for two days already served, citing the defendant’s military service and lack of a criminal record. Worden said the rest of the term would be served on monitored house arrest.

Eubanks was arrested after police found his hands covered in blood, and the victim bleeding and lying on the ground. Court documents say that both Eubanks and the woman maintain that the other person had hit their vehicle just beforehand.
