An East Central District Court judge sentenced a 44-year-old man today to serve eight years in prison for assaulting a woman and police officers last month.

Sheldon James Bell, no permanent address, received the sentence after pleading guilty to five Class C felony charges that included assault, aggravated assault, terrorizing and attempting to disarm a law enforcement officer.

Bell told Judge Steven Marquart he wanted to apologize to his ex-girlfriend, saying, "I caused her some harm ... I regret it."

Under the sentencing, Bell will also be placed on five years of supervised probation and was given credit for 34 days.

Bell was arrested Nov. 24 after police responded to a report of a fight at 500 NP Ave. He then began fighting with the officers, punching one repeatedly in the head before officers subdued him with a Taser.
