Fed court trial set for Eagle Butte man in standoff case

Posted:

       PIERRE, S.D. (AP) _ An Eagle Butte man accused in a standoff with law officers in Pierre faces a jury trial in federal court early next year.
 
       The trial for 27-year-old Jason Garreau is scheduled to begin Jan. 14.
 
       Garreau has pleaded not guilty to six charges _ four counts of assaulting, resisting and impeding federal officers, and two weapons-related counts. The charges stem from a nine-hour standoff on Oct. 31 in which a Pierre police officer was shot. Officials have said the officer was not seriously wounded.
 
       Authorities say Garreau also was present when another man was shot to death Oct. 30 during a shootout near Fort Thompson during a vehicle chase.
