Bismarck  (NDHP)  On the evening of October 5th, 2021 the North Dakota Highway Patrol conducted an aircraft detail to safely and more effectively apprehend suspects that flee from traffic stops in the Bismarck-Mandan area. The North Dakota Highway Patrol fixed-wing aircraft was used to monitor traffic stops conducted by local law enforcement in the event a vehicle fled.

At 8:16 pm CDT, a Bismarck Police Officer attempted to stop a motorcycle for a traffic violation. The driver of the motorcycle fled from the officer at a high rate of speed. Due to the dangerous nature of the driver’s actions that posed a risk to other motorists, the officer did not pursue the suspect. The NDHP’s fixed-wing aircraft was monitoring the traffic stop. The aircraft tracked the motorcycle to a residence in rural Bismarck. Officers responded to the residence and identified the driver as a 16-year-old male. The driver was referred to juvenile court by the Bismarck PD for fleeing a police officer and reckless endangerment-extreme indifference.

Incidents of drivers fleeing law enforcement has been increasing. Through October 5, 2021, the North Dakota Highway Patrol has been involved in 72 pursuits statewide. Drivers who flee law enforcement place themselves, other motorists, and pedestrians in danger by their actions.

Due to these incidents, the North Dakota Highway Patrol more frequently engages the fixed-wing aircraft to monitor traffic stops conducted by local law enforcement. These traffic details allow law enforcement to more  effectively apprehend suspects that flee and result in enhanced safety to the public.

FORT YATES, N.D. (AP) — The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has elected a woman to be its next leader. Results released Tuesday show that Janet Alkire would be the first woman to head the tribal council in more than two decades. Gates Kelley was elected Standing Rock chairwoman in 1946 and was the first woman to lead a tribe in the United States. South Dakota Public Broadcasting reports that Alkire received 829 votes to defeat current tribal Vice Chairman Ira Taken Alive, who came in with 762 votes. Taken Alive said he is contesting the results. Alkire is a 15-year Air Force veteran who served as Standing Rock’s executive director twice. The Standing Rock Reservation straddles the North Dakota and South Dakota border and is home to about 8,000 people.



FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A man accused of shooting at police officers outside a Fargo hotel in 2019 has been acquitted of attempted murder and aggravated assault. But, a jury Monday found Henry Aiken guilty on two other charges _ terrorizing and reckless endangerment. The 55-year-old Aiken earlier pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm. Officers responding to the Radisson Inn in November 2019 found Aiken armed with a gun. Police say he fired one shot toward officers and additional shots at the hotel before entering the lobby where he was quickly arrested. Police say Aiken appeared confused and in crisis at the time.

In world and national news…

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Police have arrested a student suspected of opening fire during a fight at his Dallas-area high school, leaving four people injured. Police say 18-year-old Timothy George Simpkins fled from Timberview High School in Arlington. Simpkins was taken in custody Wednesday afternoon and charged with multiple counts of aggravated assault with a gun. Authorities say one of the victims is in critical condition at a hospital. Another person who was hurt is in good condition while a third person suffered minor abrasions and is expected to be released from the hospital later Wednesday. The fourth person who was hurt did not require treatment at a hospital.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles leaders have voted to enact one of the nation’s strictest vaccine mandates. The sweeping measure requires the shots for everyone entering bars, restaurants, nail salons, gyms and even a Lakers game. The City Council on Wednesday voted 11-2 in favor of the ordinance. Supporters say it’s a way of preventing more COVID-19 surges. Critics say the measure raises concerns about enforcement and will sow confusion because a less-sweeping vaccination mandate scheduled to take effect next month in Los Angeles County as a whole only applies to bars, breweries and nightclubs.


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is enlisting top business leaders to help push for immediately suspending the federal debt limit. He says that the approaching Oct. 18 deadlines creates the risk of a historic default that would be like a “meteor” that could crush the economy and financial markets. At a White House event Wednesday, the president tried to shame Republican senators for pledging to filibuster any suspension of the $28.4 trillion cap on the government’s borrowing authority. He leaned into the credibility of corporate America to drive home his point. The heads of Citi, JP Morgan Chase and Nasdaq gathered in person and virtually to say the debt limit must be lifted.



WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department is poised to sue government contractors and other companies who receive U.S. government grants if they if they fail to report breaches of their cyber systems. That’s according to the Justice Department’s No. 2 official. Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said the department is prepared to take legal action under a statute called the False Claims Act against contractors who misuse federal dollars by failing to disclose hacks or by having deficient cybersecurity standards. The department will also protect whistleblowers who come forward to report those issues.


WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden is restoring federal regulations guiding environmental reviews of major infrastructure projects such as highways and pipelines. It’s the latest reversal of a Trump-era environmental rollback. The White House Council on Environmental Quality said Wednesday it will restore key provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act, a bedrock environmental law designed to ensure community safeguards during environmental reviews for a wide range of federal projects and decisions. The reviews were scaled back last year by President Donald Trump in a bid to fast-track projects he said would boost the economy and provide jobs.
