GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - A man shot by a university police officer in Grand Forks following a chase is now facing three criminal charges.

David Elliott could face up to 11 years in prison if convicted on two counts of felony reckless endangerment and one count of misdemeanor fleeing. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.

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. The Grand Forks County States Attorney’s Office says no legal action will be taken against Braaten.

Elliott was treated at a Grand Forks hospital. A warrant for his arrest was issued Wednesday, and his extradition from Minnesota’s Hennepin County was pending Thursday.
