A McMinnville resident has been given 300 days in jail for aggravated assault after using the leg of a chair to hit a man in the head.

Andrew W. Berghoefer, 34, was given a five-year sentence by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley, with 300 of those days to be served in jail. The rest of the sentence will be served on probation.

According to the arrest warrant, the victim was found lying on the living room floor bleeding from the side of his head when officers responded to a domestic assault call. Residents of the home advised officers it was Andrew Berghoefer who had struck the victim before fleeing on foot.
