DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A man shot by the police chief in Belfield after allegedly pointing a gun at him has made his initial court appearance.

KXMB-TV reports that 28-year-old Richard Treff on Wednesday had his next court appearance set for Feb. 23. He could enter pleas at that time to felony charges of terrorizing and interfering with an emergency telephone call.

Treff could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.

Treff was shot in the leg on Dec. 10 when he allegedly charged Chief Nick Barnhard while pointing a handgun at him. Treff has since been released from the hospital and is jailed in Dickinson.
