LEWISTON, Maine (AP) - A Lewiston man who police say asked them to shoot him following a chase has pleaded not guilty.

The Sun Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1YqUMun ) Troy Berry pleaded not guilty Monday to charges of domestic violence terrorizing, failure to stop for police and other offenses.

Authorities say Berry tried to confront a woman he had dated at a Lisbon Street building on Friday. The victim says he threatened suicide.

Police say they found him in front of the building after a chase through the woods and he allegedly told police repeatedly to shoot him.

Prosecutors argued for a high bail, saying Berry could kill the woman and possibly himself. But his lawyer says the charges against Berry were misdemeanors.

A judge set bail at $500 with a supervision contract.
