City man pleads guilty to assault

A Muskogee man pleaded guilty Tuesday to assault on a federal officer in U.S. District Court, according to a media release.

The indictment against Zachary Ryan Rogers, 21, stated he assaulted a special deputy U.S. marshal on Nov. 6.

Rogers was arrested for biting Muskogee County Sheriff’s Deputy Darrin Berry while Berry and other members of the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force were attempting to arrest Rogers for outstanding warrants.

Rogers escaped custody after biting Berry, but was located and arrested later that day.

The statutory range of punishment for Rogers’ federal conviction is not more than 20 years in prison and/or up to a $250,000 fine.
