Anthony Peters is accused of attacking Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett outside State Fair Park in the summer of 2009.

MILWAUKEE (WSAU) The man who attacked Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett with a pipe last summer in the parking lot of the state fairgrounds will enter a guilty plea today. Anthony Peters reached a plea bargain with prosecutors yesterday. He'll admit to first degree reckless injury, two counts of disorderly conduct, and one count of bail jumping. Prosecutors will recommend nine years in jail.

As part of the agreement, a more series assault charge will be dropped, along with two other counts of bail jumping and theft.

Barrett tried to intervene when Peters got into a physical argument with his daughter and grandmother last August. Peters assaulted Barrett with a crowbar, hitting him in the head, mouth, and hand. Peters didn't realize Barrett was the mayor during the attack.
