Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A Fargo man who hid in a cornfield along I-29 and had a standoff with authorities for 11 hours today changed his plea.

22 year old Dylan Pederson is pleading guilty to felony charges of terrorizing, reckless endangerment, fleeing and preventing arrest.

Authorities say Pederson fled into the cornfield north of Fargo on Sept. 28 after a pellet gun incident in a car with his girlfriend.

He was arrested after a search that involved two helicopters, an airplane, and more than 50 people.

The judge has ordered a psychological evaluation for Pederson. He faces up to 5-years in prison on each count.
