PIERRE, South Dakota — A Mission man has been sentenced to prison for assaulting a federal officer on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 33-year-old John Arcoren III bent and put pressure on an officer's arm during an incident on Jan. 11. The officer was face-down on the ground at the time.

Arcoren pleaded guilty in May. He was sentenced this week to one year and four months in prison, to be followed by two years of supervised release.
