ROSEBUD (AP) - A man indicted on charges of shooting and wounding a tribal officer on the Rosebud Indian Reservation pleaded not guilty on Wednesday.

Linn Cross Dog III faces nine felony counts stemming from two incidents, including the May 11 shooting of Officer Patrick Iyotte. Cross Dog was arrested May 13, the same day a reward in the case was increased to $10,000.

Prosecutors say Iyotte pulled over a van in which Cross Dog was riding as part of a routine traffic stop. They say Cross Dog took control of the vehicle at gunpoint and drove away, and after a short pursuit he exited the vehicle and shot the officer.

Cross Dog was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.
