A Cushing man received a probation sentence Thursday morning after pleading guilty to punching a trooper during an arrest in March.

According to a previous report, Jarred Wade Benson, 21, was involved in a one-vehicle wreck on County Road 817. A trooper arrived on the scene and determined Benson was intoxicated.

Benson was uncooperative and tried to resist being arrested. He then hit the trooper with a glancing blow to the face.

The trooper managed to subdue and arrest Benson.

District Judge Ed Klein approved the sentence.
