Anthony Coleman was sentenced to 12 months' probation, 80 hours of community service, a required anger and violence evaluation, and a $600 fine. He waived his right to a jury trial on Wednesday and agreed to admit to one count of simple assault.
Prosecutors said Coleman pointed his finger in the face of Councilwoman Annette Lewis and pushed her hand away from in front of her face.
Coleman was arrested Dec. 2 in the incident, which occurred Sept. 22. Authorities say he and Lewis argued after a city redistricting committee meeting.
