WORTHINGTON -- A Worthington man pleaded guilty Tuesday to his involvement in a fight last year at a local bar and restaurant.

Oscar Trejo, 29, entered a Norgaard plea in Nobles County District Court to fifth-degree assault of an individual in January 2017 at the Long Branch Saloon in Worthington. If sentenced in accordance to the plea agreement, acceptance of the amended misdemeanor-level charge would dismiss two other felony-level offenses.

According to the criminal complaint, Trejo allegedly struck an individual over the back of the head with a glass beer bottle. Trejo had told law enforcement that he did so to help a friend who was engaged in a bar fight. The victim suffered a laceration behind his ear and was taken to Sanford Worthington Medical Center.

Trejo said while he could not recount the exact details of that evening due to his level of intoxication, he had no reason to doubt the accuracy of the investigation.

Trejo was ordered to pay more than $5,000 in restitution prior to this sentencing, which is not to occur until March 15 or later.
