BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A June 17 trial has been set for a 21-year-old Montana man accused of trying to run over a Billings police officer with a car.

The Billings Gazette reports that Desmond Ian Jordell Rowland, of Billings, has pleaded not guilty to felony charges of attempted assault on a peace officer, burglary and criminal endangerment.

Prosecutors say Rowland was among a group of four people who had broken into a vacant home on Nov. 4 and stolen items from the garage.

They say Rowland drove at a Billings police officer who responded to the burglary. The officer shot at the vehicle, wounding Rowland in the face. The officer was not hurt and Rowland was later found and arrested.

Rowland remains at the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on $50,100 bond.
