Dale D. Suter, who was charged with assault after a February incident with one of his Walnut Saloon employees, was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days of house arrest with GPS monitoring.

He pleaded guilty to an amended charge of aggravated disorderly conduct, a fourth-degree misdemeanor, according to Dave Beach, director of court services for Findlay Municipal Court. Suter, 76, of Findlay, was originally charged with assault, a first-degree misdemeanor.

The incident was captured in a video that was later posted to Facebook. It shows Suter shouting at an employee, then physically assaulting her.

The Walnut Saloon has since closed.

Suter will receive 10 days of jail credit if successful on house arrest, Beach said. He will be on probation for two years. He was fined $250 and must pay court costs.

Judge Alan Hackenberg oversaw the case.
