HART — A 29-year-old Muskegon man faces up eight months in jail after pleading guilty in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Nov. 9, to assaulting/resisting/obstructing police.

Freddie Lee Patterson, II, of 1923 Ray St., testified that on Sept. 5 he was leaving the Rothbury Wesco when an altercation with another individual ensued. The other individual left the scene before police arrived, and Patterson said that he “kept walking” when a Michigan State Police trooper attempted to stop him at the scene.

In exchange for his guilty plea, one count of second-offense habitual offender status was dismissed, and the prosecution agreed to cap Patterson’s jail sentence at eight months. The maximum term is two years in prison.

Sentencing is set for Jan. 4 at 9 a.m.
