GARRISON, N.D. (AP) - A Garrison man faces nearly a dozen charges after allegedly leading several McLean County sheriff’s deputies on a three-hour chase.

Twenty-five-year-old Robert Painte faces several misdemeanor counts and three felony charges: reckless endangerment, criminal mischief and theft. He could face more than 28 years in prison if convicted on all counts.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Painte is accused of fleeing from deputies during a traffic stop on Oct. 11, as the officers were preparing to arrest him. He eventually was arrested at a relative’s residence after an officer subdued him with a stun gun.

Painte is due in court on Nov. 5 and could enter pleas at that time. His public defender did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
