CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A U.S. Bureau of Indian Affairs police officer has pleaded not guilty to federal charges of kidnapping and brandishing a gun during a violent crime.

William Arthur Curran pleaded not guilty Wednesday before U.S. Magistrate Kelly Rankin in Cheyenne.

Rankin set trial for July 18 before U.S. District Judge Alan B. Johnson in Cheyenne.

The charges stem from what prosecutors allege was a violent confrontation between Curran and his wife at their home on the Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming in April.

Court records identify Curran as a BIA police officer and a member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe of South Dakota.
