DL man sentenced for assault

Jason Ryan Weum, 26, of 24576 East Munson Drive, Detroit Lakes has been sentenced for felony third-degree assault, substantial bodily harm.

On Nov. 24, 2007, Weum was at the Roadhouse Bar and Grill when he noticed a man talking to his ex-girlfriend, according to court records. At one point in the evening he punched the man in the face without warning, fracturing his jaw.

The victim said the two men had never spoken to each other. Witnesses said Weum "blind-sided him" with the punch, according to court records.

He pleaded guilty June 11 and on Wednesday District Judge Peter Irvine stayed imposition of sentence for five year and placed him on supervised probation. He was ordered to serve 30 days in jail, with work release privileges granted, and to pay a $500 fine plus court fees.

He must also complete an intensive outpatient treatment program. A restitution hearing will be held later.
