Charges pile up on man accused of shooting tribal officer


ROSEBUD, S.D. (AP) - A man accused of shooting and wounding a tribal officer on the Rosebud Indian Reservation is facing federal charges including assault with a dangerous weapon.

Linn Cross Dog III faces nine felony counts from two May incidents. Court documents identify the official shot on May 11 as Officer Patrick Iyotte.

Court documents show Cross Dog allegedly fled from Iyotte in a van holding others during a traffic stop. Following a foot chase, authorities say Cross Dog shot Iyotte in the forearm and then escaped after being hit with a baton.

He was arrested May 13, the same day a reward in the case was increased to $10,000.

Neil Fulton, head of the federal public defender's office for North Dakota and South Dakota, says Cross Dog intends to plead not guilty.
