MASON CITY – A Mason City man who violently attacked a woman and her car has been sent to prison after entering guilty pleas.

Brian Nathaniel Smith, age 32, was sentenced this week to two concurrent 5-year prison terms with an additional 30 days after pleading guilty to two counts of willful injury causing bodily injury and assault, respectively. He must also pay $4,448.56 in court costs.

Smith was arrested after police were called on the morning of September 17, 2015 to a North End house and a number of injured persons were discovered. According to Mason City police, at 1:58 AM that morning, an argument was reported near the intersection of 14th Street and North Washington. Officers arrived to find a female lying on the ground near a vehicle that had several slashed tires and a broken windshield in front of 1309 North Washington.

Mason City fire medics were called and transported the female to the hospital with undisclosed injuries.

Police continued to investigate the assault and soon arrested Smith, who lived at 1309 North Washington. He was charged with Willful Injury (D Felony), Criminal Mischief 2nd Degree (D Felony). Additional victims were identified during the investigation and charges were filed on Smith for Willful Injury (D Felony) and Assault Causing Serious Injury (Serious Misdemeanor) connected to the additional victims.

    There should be no early parole when terms are being served concurrently.
