PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Mission woman has been sentenced to half a year in federal prison for spraying pepper spray in the face of a police officer.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says 29-year-old Abigail Garneaux attacked the Rosebud Sioux police officer last May when he went to arrest her for failing a field sobriety test.

Garneaux pleaded guilty in December to assaulting a federal officer and was sentenced late last month. She will be on home confinement for half a year and supervised release for two years following her prison term.

Garneaux also is known as Abigail Garcia.
