COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) - A former Schuyler police officer has been given a year of probation after making a deal with prosecutors.

The Columbus Telegram reports (https://bit.ly/1KXEgzA ) that Scott Wimer also was fined $150 at his sentencing hearing Thursday in Platte County Court. The 38-year-old pleaded no contest to attempted domestic assault after prosecutors lowered the charge.

Court documents say Wimer clashed with his estranged wife on Oct. 1 and July 12 last year at their home in Columbus.

Wimer joined the Schuyler force in May 2003. He resigned on Nov. 9.
