An Eagle Butte man has pleaded not guilty to six charges resulting from a standoff with law enforcement officers in Pierre.
27-year-old Jason Todd Garreau entered the not-guilty pleas Friday during an arraignment in federal court in Pierre.
Garreau was indicted on four counts of assaulting, resisting and impeding federal officers, one count of possession of a firearm during a crime of violence and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
The charges resulted from a nine-hour standoff on Oct. 31 in which a Pierre police officer was shot. Officials have said the officer was not seriously wounded.
Authorities say Garreau also was present when another man was shot to death during a shootout near Fort Thompson during a vehicle chase.
