ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Thursday, an Albuquerque man accused of attacking two cops was sentenced to seven years in prison.

John Sena was arrested last month on San Mateo and Candelaria after a fight with his girlfriend.

Police say Sena kicked one officer and went for another’s Taser, then tried to strangle the officer with his own lapel cords.

Sena is a convicted felon, and that arrest violated his probation. He is scheduled for court on Monday to face new charges for the fight with police. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
