BISMARCK, N.D. — An Idaho man accused of driving a kidnapped woman’s car to North Dakota and pulling a gun on a trucker has pleaded guilty to four felony charges.
The Bismarck Tribune reports that 57-year-old Mitchell Lee Walck pleaded guilty Tuesday to terrorizing, unlawful entry to a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property and felon in possession of a firearm.
Authorities allege he shot at an Idaho state trooper on Nov. 30, kidnapped a woman from her Rathdrum home a day later, released her the next day in Glendive, Mont., then drove to Bismarck and threatened a trucker whose semitrailer sleeper cab he had entered. (See a timeline of these events.)
Walck is slated to be sentenced on Oct. 1. He faces up to five years in prison on each of the four charges.
