DECORAH, Iowa – A second guilty plea is entered in a Winneshiek County fight.

Jacob Donald Pambin, 32 of Calmar, and Jordan Hunter Nelson, 26 of West Union, were arrested in March 2017 after a confrontation authorities say happened at Lake Meyer, south of Calmar, and resulted in Nelson hitting Pambin in the head with a baseball bat.

Pambim suffered a small skull fracture and had to be hospitalized.

Nelson pleaded guilty to assault causing bodily injury and carrying a weapon and was given two years of supervised probation.

Pambin has now entered a guilty plea to going armed with intent. Authorities say Pambin threatened Nelson with a steel pipe but dropped it before Nelson hit him with the bat. No sentencing date has been set.
