GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A man shot six times by a university police officer in Grand Forks following a chase early this year has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors.

A change-of-plea hearing is scheduled Sept. 28 for David Elliott, who is charged with two counts of felony reckless endangerment and one count of misdemeanor fleeing. The charges carry a maximum total punishment of 11 years in prison.

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.

Prosecutors took no action against Braaten.
