     MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot woman who bit a police officer on the arm while being arrested for alcohol detox has been sentenced to 1 1/2 years of probation. Forty-seven-year-old Tracy Holdaway recently pleaded guilty to felony assault on a police officer in July. The Minot Daily News reports that if she successfully completes probation, the charge will be cleared from her record. Holdaway also was ordered to undergo a chemical dependency evaluation and pay $525 in court costs.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A pair of Chinese nationals has been indicted on charges that they manufactured tons of fentanyl and other powerful narcotics that were peddled in the United States and flowed, in part, through North Dakota.
 
     Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictments today, saying the pair ran one of the world's most prolific drug trafficking and money laundering organizations. One of the two, 38-year-old Jian Zhang, was indicted in the District of North Dakota, along with eight others accused in the conspiracy.
 
     North Dakota U.S. Attorney Christopher Myers says the whole investigation began in January 2015 with the overdose death of 18-year-old Bailey Henke in Grand Forks. Officials say American customers could purchase pure fentanyl and other dangerous drugs online, directly from Chinese factories. Inexperienced users don't know the drug is pure and overdose.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Supreme Court has denied a petition by some district court judges who argued out-of-state lawyers were no longer needed to represent Dakota Access pipeline protesters.
 
     Judges from the state's South Central District have said the lawyers were no longer justified because no new cases have been filed, the Bismarck Tribune reported. The state's high court denied the petition on Monday.
 
     South Central District Presiding Judge Gail Hagerty declined to comment on the justices' decision.
 
     The North Dakota Supreme Court in January said out-of-state attorneys may assist pipeline protest-related cases if sponsored by a North Dakota attorney.
 
     About 830 criminal cases were filed in connection to the protests. More than 400 have closed, most of them with dismissed charges.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The State Department has granted Enbridge Energy a presidential permit for the final piece of its project to boost the capacity of its Alberta Clipper oil pipeline. Enbridge needed it for a segment that crosses the U.S.-Canadian border into North Dakota. After nearly five years of review, the State Department said Monday that issuing the permit serves the national interest. The pipeline carries Alberta crude across Minnesota to Superior, Wisconsin.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The state Agriculture Department says nearly all of the 215 North Dakota farmers who responded to a survey on the herbicide dicamba reported damage from newly registered formulations of the chemical. The federal government on Friday released new label language classifying the new formulations as restricted-use products. Goehring says his agency is drafting North Dakota-specific restrictions to mitigate potential damage next year
