PIERRE (AP) - A Rapid City man has pleaded not guilty to federal charges tied to a car chase in Pierre during which a police officer fired his weapon.

Thirty-six-year-old Alvin Chambers faces two counts of using a car to assault a federal officer. A trial date was not immediately set.

The Feb. 19 chase began when officers attempted to arrest Chambers on a drug-related warrant. Chambers allegedly rammed squad vehicles belonging to a city police officer and a deputy U.S. marshal during the chase. Authorities say the city officer at one point fired his gun twice at the suspect's vehicle.

Authorities say Chambers eventually parked and ran into a hotel, where he was apprehended.
