Man pleads not guilty in Kindred standoff caseA Kindred, N.D., man pleaded not guilty Thursday in Cass County District Court to charges stemming from a 12-hour standoff at his home that ended on Oct. 31.
Robert Lee Bodin Jr., 39, was charged with aggravated domestic assault and preventing arrest following the incident at 181 Elm St.
Bodin is accused in court documents of injuring his wife’s hand while trying to take vehicle keys from her.
Court records say he also injured the wrist of a police officer while he was being arrested.
The arrest came after Bodin was forced out of his garage when members of Red River Valley SWAT deployed tear gas.
