WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williston police say a man upset with neighbors setting off fireworks responded by firing a shotgun, injuring two people.

WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williston police say a man upset with neighbors setting off fireworks responded by firing a shotgun, injuring two people.
     Authorities responded to the scene Friday night. Officers say David Bartz told them he had fired his 20-gauge shotgun into the air because he was "fed up" with his neighbors shooting off fireworks.
     Authorities say two people were injured by shotgun pellets. Bartz allegedly told law officers that the victims were "a bunch of sissies" and deserved what they got.
     Bartz is charged with three counts of felony terrorizing, two counts of aggravated assault, three counts of reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm within city limits. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. A listed telephone number for him could not immediately be found.


BISMARCK, N.D. - A former Mandan teacher has pleaded not guilty to allegations he wrote two students into a racy book and gave it to them as a gift.

Scott Allan pleaded not guilty today at the Morton County Courthouse to a Class C felony promoting obscenity to minors and Class B misdemeanor disorderly conduct. The felony charge is in reference to material he is accused of giving to a 17-year-old girl, and the misdemeanor charge is in relation to material allegedly given to an 18-year-old woman.

South Central District Judge Cynthia Feland scheduled a two-day trial for Allan beginning Sept. 30.

Police said Mandan High School officials reported on May 22 that a 17-year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman had reported Allan gave them a book that alarmed and concerned them. Under state law, educators must report any crimes or suspected crimes against children.  Mandan school officials placed Allan on administrative leave the day the girls reported the book, and Allan resigned that day.

BISMARCK, N.D. - Two national groups have sent letters to the North Dakota Secretary of State protesting the application of the state's new voter identification laws.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Freedom Resources Center for Independent Living claim the new voter ID laws could disenfranchise voters.

In its letter, sent on Friday, the ACLU recommends expanding the forms of ID permitted to be used to include items such as passports, game and fish licenses and utility bills.

Secretary of State Al Jaeger said Monday his office will review the letters and craft a response. However, he said his office is limited by statute as to what it can do in adopting any recommendations made by the groups.  Legislation passed in 2013 altered the ID requirements and also did away with allowing voter affidavits. North Dakota is the only state that doesn't require voter registration.
