Joshua Curren appeared in court on Wednesday for a pretrial conference where two out of his six counts were dismissed.
Curren previously pled not guilty, but switched his plea to no contest for the charges stemming from an incident that occurred on May 30.
Antelope County Sheriff Bob Moore said Curren, 24 of Orchard and formerly of Washington, attempted to enter a home near Third and Rusk Street in Orchard just after 10 p.m that Monday night. The female occupant alerted friends who tried to subdue Curren, but Moore said the subject then assaulted those individuals.
Moore said Curren resisted arrest and was eventually subdued by law enforcement after some time. The six charges include assault of an officer, assault, trespassing, disturbing the peace, obstructing an officer, and resisting arrest.
The counts that Curren is still being charged with four counts.
