A Village of Kalkaska Police Officer was sentenced today, after assaulting his neighbor over the summer.

Sergeant Glen Artress was sentenced 5 days in jail, four months probation, and more than $600 in fines, after pleading no contest to assault and battery charges.

In this update, a Kalkaska Village Police Officer has pled no contest to an assault charge.

Last August, Sergeant Glenn Artress was charged with the crime after Michigan State Police say he assaulted a neighbor.

He was placed on paid leave for several months before returning back to work.

A no contest plea means Artress doesn't admit guilt, but accepts the punishment.

The crime carries a possible 93 day jail sentence.

Artress will be sentenced sometime in February.
