BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) - A suburban Omaha city administrator has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from an altercation in a dentist’s office.

The Omaha World-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2azbF7F ) that the attorney for Bellevue City Administrator Dan Berlowitz entered the pleas Tuesday in Sarpy County Court in Papillion (puh-PIHL’-yuhn). The misdemeanor charges are trespassing, disturbing the peace and assault.

Berlowitz has been placed on paid administrative leave.

A police report says Berlowitz poked a Bellevue dentist in the chest on June 21 and then pushed the dentist’s in a shoulder. Berlowitz’s attorney, James Schaefer, says Berlowitz felt threatened and says Berlowitz denies assaulting the dentist.
