ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A Santa Fe man has been sentenced to 30 months in prison in New Mexico for assaulting a federal law enforcement officer.
Prosecutors say 26-year-old Jordan Roybal was sentenced Thursday in federal court in Albuquerque.
Roybal was arrested last March on a criminal complaint charging him with assaulting a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer in November 2016 in Santa Fe County.
Prosecutors say Roybal resisted arrest, challenged the officer to a fight and bit him on the wrist.
