[¶1] Carlos Mendez appeals from a criminal judgment entered after a jury found him guilty of assault on a peace officer and contact by bodily fluids; Mendez also appeals from a district court order denying his motion for a mistrial. On appeal, Mendez argues the evidence was insufficient to support his convictions and claims his motion for a mistrial should have been granted. We conclude sufficient evidence exists to support the convictions and the court did not abuse its discretion in denying the motion for a mistrial. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(3) and (4).
