GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A man shot six times by a university police officer in Grand Forks following a chase has pleaded guilty to charges.

Forty-two-year-old David Elliott earlier pleaded not guilty to felony reckless endangerment and misdemeanor fleeing. WDAZ-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1MeSE4D ) that he changed his plea Monday.

University of North Dakota Police Officer Jared Braaten on Feb. 28 shot Elliott in a parking lot where authorities said Elliott had stopped after leading officers on a chase. Elliott was treated at a Minneapolis hospital and recovered. He said in court Monday that he didn’t remember the incident.

Elliott could face up to 11 years in prison, though his plea agreement with prosecutors calls for a sentence of four months in jail. A judge must agree at sentencing, which is set for Feb. 1.
