ND man pleads guilty to officer assault

BISMARCK, N.D. — A 33-year-old Minot man has pleaded guilty to assaulting and resisting a federal officer.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon has announced that Vincent M. Anderson pleaded guilty to the charge this week.

Prosecutors say Anderson hit a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer in the face when the officer was attempting to arrest him during a traffic stop in Belcourt in March.

Anderson faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is set for Aug. 27 in Minot.
