A Killeen man who pleaded guilty in June to head-butting a police officer was sentenced on Friday in the 264th Judicial District Court to probation, an official said.

Derrick Joseph Houston, 33, “received a sentence of 6 years (of) probation from Judge Paul LePak,” said Bell County District Attorney Henry Garza on Friday. As a condition of probation, Houston will be confined to nine months in a substance abuse facility followed by supervision at a halfway house, Garza said.
