A Zanesville man pleads guilty to assaulting two corrections officers.

28-year-old Colt Lightfoot appeared Wednesday in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court where he entered the plea to the charges which stemmed from an incident last month at the Zanesville City  jail.

Detetive Sgt. Ric Roush says Lightfoot became belligerent in the visitation area of the jail and when approached by officers he assaulted them. Both officers received minor injuries.

Judge Mark Fleegle ordered a pre-sentence investigation.

Lightfoot also plead guilty Wednesday to several theft charges in connection with incidents that occurred between October and November of 2010.

He’s currently being held in the Muskingum County jail.
