A Grand Forks man who assaulted a man who had just been hit by a car will spend a year and a half in prison.

33-year-old Justin Teague was sentenced Monday.

Teague was arrested last October after a two-vehicle crash that resulted in a man having a leg amputated below the knee.

Teague was a passenger in the car that hit the man.

He assaulted the victim after the crash, fought with someone who stopped to help the man, and threatened to kill a police officer.

The driver of the car that authorities say hit the man will be sentenced in May.
