REDDING, Calif. - A man will spend six years in prison for assaulting a Mercy Medical Center employee in Redding.

Christopher Cook pled guilty just this week.

Prosecutors say he swung a bicycle chain at a security guard in the hospital's parking lot in 2017. 

Cook had just been released from prison for another assault conviction.

Cooler weather the next few days before we warm up again this weekend flirting with more record high temperatures. By next week we get even cooler but we also have the possibility of high fire danger next week.
