A Nora Springs man and his son have received suspended jail sentences after making guilty pleas to assaulting a police officer during an incident involving a combine. 43-year-old Virgil Fett and his 23-year-old son Billy Dean Fett each received 30-day suspended jail sentences, a 250-dollar fine, and one-year probation in a decision recently made in Cerro Gordo County District Court. Nora Springs police chief Alex Leu was responding to a reckless driving complaint and was in the process of arresting the Fetts when Billy drove a combine within two feet of Leu. Virgil Fett escaped while Billy Fett was pepper-sprayed before fleeing on foot. Both men were later apprehended without incident.
