A 21-year-old Fremont man has pleaded no contest to assaulting officers and spitting on one.

Sentencing is scheduled November 26th for Eric Armenta, of Fremont.

Armenta entered the pleas on Monday to two counts of assault on an officer and one count each of terroristic threats and assault with a bodily fluid against an officer.

Dodge County Attorney Oliver Glass says the charges stem from a fight July 8 at a downtown Fremont business. Dodge County sheriff's deputies and Fremont police officers responded.

Glass says Armenta kicked a door that struck an officer, breaking one of the officer's hands. Glass says bit one deputy and spit in the face of another.

Glass also says Armenta threatened to harm jailers and their families.
