UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
Plaintiff-Appellee,
v.
ERIC MICHAEL VERWIEBE,
Defendant-Appellant.
   No. 16-2591
Appeal from the United States District Court
for the Western District of Michigan at Marquette.
No. 2:15-cr-00031-1—Paul Lewis Maloney, District Judge.
Decided and Filed: October 20, 2017

AMENDED OPINION
_________________________

SUTTON, Circuit Judge. Law enforcement arrested Eric Verwiebe for brandishing a knife, threatening to kill tribal police officers, and resisting arrest. He pleaded guilty to assaulting a federal officer with a dangerous weapon. The district court sentenced him as a career offender due to his prior federal convictions for assault with a dangerous weapon and assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Because each crime combines common law assault with an additional element that, together, indicate “the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force,” both of them amount to “crimes of violence” under § 4B1.2(a) of the Sentencing Guidelines. We affirm his sentence.

OPINION
_________________________

SUTTON, Circuit Judge. In the spring of 2013, Shane Bays walked into the Montmorency County Jail to await trial for driving a car with a suspended license. While there, he described symptoms of a mental illness to Donna Sigler, the jail nurse. Several weeks after arriving, he killed himself. In response, Shane’s parents filed this § 1983 action against Sigler and Montmorency County. The district court denied summary judgment to Sigler but granted it to the County. Sigler appealed and the Bays cross-appealed. Because a triable issue of fact remains over whether Sigler violated Shane’s clearly established Fourteenth Amendment right to sufficient treatment for a serious medical problem, we affirm the district court’s qualifiedimmunity ruling. Because the Bays’ cross-appeal of the summary judgment decision in favor of the County is not inextricably intertwined with Sigler’s appeal, we dismiss it.
