Troy City Manager Brian Kischnick has been sentenced to 30 days in jail after he was found guilty in a domestic assault and battery incident in March.
However, a Clarkston judge also ordered Kischnick to attend a 40-day domestic violence program, have no contact with the victim and refrain from alcohol and and controlled substances.
If Kischnick completes the domestic violence program and the rest of his probation successfully, he will not have to serve the jail sentenced.
On March 9, Kischnick tackled a woman to the ground on the sidewalk in Clawson and continued to push her down as she attempted to get up, witnesses said.
Kischnick and the woman were returning home after an evening out to dinner when they got into an argument. He was arrested and arraigned on assault and battery charges. He violated his bond the following day by contacting the victim and was jailed.
City Council removed Kischnick from his job a few days later.
