WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A Williston man accused of tying nooses around the necks of his son and ex-wife has pleaded guilty to terrorizing and reckless endangerment. Authorities allege Isaac Gould also tied the other end of the noose that was around his son's neck to a vehicle and drove a short distance in July 2013. Gould pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges involving his son under the stipulation that the charges involving his ex-wife be dismissed.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fargo police arrested a woman who allegedly became drunk and unruly on a flight into Hector International Airport. The 35-year-old Fargo woman was taken to jail last night on a charge of resisting arrest. Authorities allege the woman assaulted a flight attendant and was combative with police officers.

DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - Mayor Dick Johnson says Devils Lake is opposed to a proposal by BNSF Railway to allow increased train speeds on a section of track in the city. Johnson says BNSF is planning to double the current 30 mph limit on a nearly mile-and-a-half-long section of track, starting next month. The mayor says the city believes that will create a safety risk.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man who has been questioned in an alleged murder-for-hire scheme in Washington state has won his fight for evidence to be used against him in a separate illegal weapons case. James Henrikson of Watford City was arrested for being a felon in possession of firearms after authorities found guns in a safe in his home. His lawyer argued the warrant didn't authorize police to contact the safe manufacturer for the combination of the safe and the evidence should be excluded.
