CINCINNATI — A Milford man will spend a year in prison for punching a Social Security Administration guard in the face.

U.S. District Judge Michael R. Barrett sentenced 35-year-old Daniel Toops Thursday for the assault that happened on April 11 at the Batavia Social Security office.

According to court documents, Toops was dissatisfied with information he was given after speaking with an official at the social security office. Toops started to leave the building and shouted expletives that included threats to the office and the workers.

Court documents said Toops was then approached by a security guard. There was an altercation, and Toops punched the security guard in the face.

The guard sprayed Toops with mace and arrested him.

Toops pleaded guilty in June for assaulting an officer.
