A Casper man will avoid prison time after admitting to assaulting another man in an argument.

Bradley Davis was given a four-to-six year suspended prison sentence, with three years of probation, after he pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in middle February, the victim was driving Davis' car near Honeysuckle and CY Avenue with Davis riding in the passenger seat, when Davis started attacking the victim.

The victim said Davis was in an argument with his ex-girlfriend earlier and when the victim realized he was driving Davis to the ex-girlfriend's house, he didn't stop driving.

The victim said Davis then started punching him in the face and later he was hit again with an object and felt blood running down his face.

The victim ran inside a gas station to get away, and the clerk at the gas station later saw Davis lay down a box cutter type knife.

When interviewed, Davis said he thought the victim was stealing the car and admitted to the punching and using an object.

Police were able to detect an alcohol odor coming from Davis at the time.
