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.

It took a few hours, but the sun broke through the clouds over most of northern California Tuesday afternoon. The low clouds, fog and light rain showers return to the valley Wednesday, with snowy weather in the mountains.
