RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A federal grand jury has indicted a western South Dakota man who authorities accuse of trying to obtain painkillers with a false prescription.

Federal court records show Isaac Standing Bear has pleaded not guilty to one count each of false statements relating to health care matters and attempt to obtain controlled substances by fraud.

Authorities accuse Standing Bear of presenting a fraudulent prescription for hydrocodone at the Indian Health Services pharmacy on Pine Ridge in February.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Daneta Wollmann has set the jury trial for Standing Bear for Nov. 24 in Rapid City.
