BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Trial in federal court in North Dakota for two men indicted in a drug conspiracy linked to a California street gang has been delayed.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that the trial in Bismarck for Ulises Villalobos-Alvarado and Juan Nunez was to be next week, but defense attorneys asked for more time to prepare. Judge Daniel Hovland rescheduled the trial to begin July 9.

The case began when Villalobos-Alvarado was accused of trying to run over a Bismarck officer who subsequently shot him in the arm during a probation search Jan. 18. He later turned himself in at a gas station in Brookings, South Dakota. Nunez was accused of helping him avoid apprehension.

The state charges were dropped in March, and the two were charged in the federal drug case.
