Bismarck man faces trial on charge of terrorizing

BISMARCK, N.D. — A Bismarck man who was shot in the arm by police during an assault arrest will face a jury in August on charges he terrorized his girlfriend.

Thirty-four-year-old Arthur Feather appeared in court Monday on two counts of Class C felony terrorizing. South Central District Judge Tom Schneider set the case for trial beginning Aug. 22. Feather is pleading not guilty.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/KsvxBb ) that the charges stem from a March 16 argument between Feather and his girlfriend. Feather allegedly assaulted the woman, prompting a witness to call police.

Police say Feather advanced toward officers despite being told to stop. Feather was shot first with a Taser, and then with a gun.

Feather is being held in the Burleigh County Detention Center without bond on a separate charge.
