Jury finds Washington man guilty of assault, not criminal endangerment

A 12-person jury found a Washington man guilty of misdemeanor assault June 29 for attacking his coworker in their work truck, but decided he wasn’t guilty of a felony charge of criminal endangerment because it wasn’t clear the assault happened while they were driving down Interstate 90.
 
Tim Jensen, also of Washington, accused his coworker Mark Sobczuk of slamming his face into a lunchbox and putting him in a headlock while driving 60 mph on I-90 just outside the rest stop east of Big Timber.
