FARGO, N.D. -- An Arizona sheriff's deputy accused of driving to North Dakota and assaulting a man who had an affair with his wife has pleaded guilty to felony aggravated assault.

A sentencing date was not immediately set for 41-year-old Timothy Abrahamson, of Glendale, Ariz. He faces up to five years in prison.

Abrahamson was accused of driving to West Fargo last September and confronting Jason Swart in Swart's driveway. Court documents state Swart lost part of an ear in the assault.

The Forum newspaper reported that Swart was a high school classmate of Abrahamson's wife.

Abrahamson no longer works for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department in Arizona.
