Suspect leads law officers from 6 agencies on lengthy chase after allegedly striking officer


BISMARCK, North Dakota — Formal charges are pending against a man accused of assaulting a federal Bureau of Indian Affairs officer and then leading law officers from six agencies on a chase from the Fort Yates area into Bismarck.

The Highway Patrol says the chase began when the BIA officer was struck by a truck he had stopped when the truck's driver fled. The agent got back into his vehicle and began a pursuit that eventually also involved the state patrol, Bismarck and Mandan police, and Burleigh County and Morton County sheriff's officials.

Officers used spike strips to disable the truck, and the driver eventually surrendered in Bismarck. The BIA officer was taken to a Bismarck hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.
