A Minnesota man who assaulted four police officers and carried a baton as a weapon at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, then bragged that he “beat the s— out of a police officer,” was sentenced to prison, authorities said on Thursday.

Brian Christopher Mock, 44, was sentenced to 33 months in prison, 24 months of supervised release, and ordered to pay $2,710 in restitution and fines by U.S. District Court Chief Judge James E. Boasberg — a Barack Obama appointee. The sentence is significantly lower than the potential maximum 20 years behind bars he could have received, as well as a steep departure from the prosecutors’ request of 109 months in prison.
