Authorities say a male suspect was shot and wounded by a Bismarck police officer outside a local motel.....

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Authorities say a male suspect was shot and wounded by a Bismarck police officer outside a local motel. Police say an officer was doing follow-up on an unrelated call Sunday shortly before 10 a.m. when he was attacked before he could get out of his car. Police say the officer was punched in the head repeatedly had his eyes gouged.

    Police say the officer fought back and tried to use a stun gun on the attacker but that was "ineffective." The officer then shot the suspect in the abdomen to stop the attack. The suspect was taken to a local hospital for surgery. The officer also was taken to a local hospital and was treated for head and serious eye injuries.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A 62-year-old man indicted in a western North Dakota methamphetamine ring has been sentenced to six years in federal prison. Kim Davis Johnson pleaded guilty earlier to conspiracy to distribute with intent to distribute meth. He is one of 10 people charged in the case.

    The Bismarck Tribune reports that prosecutors asked for a sentence of more than seven years. Johnson's attorney, Stormy Vickers, asked for five years. Vickers said Johnson was a middleman in the meth operation who set up the deals. Vickers said his client didn't have money or drugs.

    Johnson told U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland he suffers from drug addiction and mesothelioma stemming from working in mines in Montana. Johnson told Hovland he didn't want to die in prison.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck police arrested a man for possession of drugs after first spotting him attempting to light a cigarette with the nozzle of a gas pump.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that 29-year-old Skyler Whitebull, of Cannon Ball, was spotted by police who were driving by the gas station. Authorities say Whitebull refused to put the nozzle back and took a "fighting stance" when police attempted to stop him. Court documents say the officer forced Whitebull to the ground. He allegedly continued to resist and flailed his legs even while handcuffed.
 
     Officers searched Whitebull and found several small, zippered bags with methamphetamine residue. He is charged with misdemeanor meth possession and preventing arrest. Court documents do not list an attorney for Whitebull.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota University System chancellor says potential customers who are interested in teaming with North Dakota researchers on fields like unmanned aircraft are balking because of the state's open records laws.

    Chancellor Mark Hagerott told the state Board of Higher Education during last month's meeting that some leading research universities are afraid to partner on projects because they fear the state isn't doing enough to protect its data, especially in light of recent worldwide events involving the spread of information.

    Hagerott, who was the focus of a 2016 open records dispute that was made public last month, says he was raising the point "as an open question" and the issue would be addressed by the board's governance committee.
    The Legislature recently passed a bill on protecting university research.

     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A proposed ordinance in Minot says people who feed wildlife could be subject to fines. The Minot Daily News reports that the ordinance was proposed by a City Council's Animal Nuisance Committee, which is studying solutions to nuisance animals, including deer, geese, turkeys, raccoons and rabbits. A penalty fine for feeding the animals could cost up to $1,000. The ordinance also recommends the City Council leave open the possibility of selective urban hunting in its effort to ban archery and crossbow hunting in city limits.
 
     North Dakota Game & Fish Outreach Biologist Greg Gullickson says in certain situations hunting can be used as "a tool that has worked for other communities." The council has approved the ordinance on first reading and can amend it before giving its final approval.
