PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - An Eagle Butte man has been sentenced to nearly two years in prison for an assault that gave a woman facial injuries that required complex plastic surgery to repair.

U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange has sentenced 27-year-old Carl White Eagle to 21 months in prison, followed by two years of supervised release.

White Eagle earlier pleaded guilty to assault resulting in serious bodily injury stemming from the April 2015 attack.

Authorities say White Eagle and friends were drinking at a residence when he got into an argument with his girlfriend. Wordlessly and without warning, he turned around and assaulted a woman who was walking behind them, knocking her to the ground.

Law enforcement was notified when she later got medical attention. She had to get plastic surgery to fix her lip and mouth injuries.
