A 21-year-old Fremont man accused of fighting with law enforcement officers in July entered pleas to four charges Monday in Dodge County District Court.

Eric Armenta pleaded no contest to two counts of third-degree 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 said deputies from the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and officers with the Fremont Police Department responded to a fight July 8 at a downtown business.

Glass said Armenta kicked a door that struck an officer, breaking the officer’s hand. Glass said Armenta spit in the face of one deputy and bit the hand of another.

Glass said Bayliff provided keys to another person, who stole a safe containing jewelry and cash from the home of Bayliff’s grandmother.

Sentencing was set for Nov. 19.
