BISMARCK — A Bismarck man will spend three years on probation on charges accusing him of assaulting two women, barricading himself in a home and leading law officers on a chase from Mandan to Bismarck.

Tjaden Smith, 20, in April was accused of assaulting two women in Mandan and threatening to kill a man. He fled to a Bismarck home and surrendered after a six-hour standoff, according to authorities.

Smith entered Alford pleas Wednesday, Oct. 9, in Morton County on charges of terrorizing, aggravated assault and misdemeanor simple assault. He is scheduled for a change of plea on reckless endangerment and fleeing charges in Burleigh County on Thursday.
