CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A man who knocked out a Cedar Rapids police officer has pleaded guilty to several charges, including assault on an officer.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG reports (https://bit.ly/2aSLdWE ) that Nathan Brocks entered the pleas Monday. His sentencing is set for Sept. 27.

Officers were dispatched to a domestic disturbance at a laundromat a little after 3 p.m. Jan. 17. Police say the 33-year-old Brocks struck the officer, who fell unconscious to the ground and struck his head against a concrete parking barrier. The officer was taken to a hospital and has since returned to work.

Police say Brock continued to fight until officers used a stun gun to subdue him.
