BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man who led police on an hour-long chase from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation to Bismarck has pleaded guilty.

William Schneider is charged in federal court with four counts for the incident that happened last March after he was pulled over in Fort Yates. Schneider pleaded guilty to assaulting a federal officer and false statements.

Authorities say one of the officers was allegedly hurt after he tried to stop Schneider from driving away. Schneider allegedly drove as fast as 95 mph during the chase and ordered a passenger to throw out a bag of drugs and a firearm.

In exchange for the plea, prosecutors agreed to drop charges of prohibited person in possession of a firearm and fleeing.

The Standing Rock reservation straddles the North and South Dakota border.
