WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — A man charged with attempted murder in a Williston shooting is now accused of trying to start a riot in the Williams County jail.

Authorities allege Paul Huckstep on March 23 tried to incite a riot by demanding different food, removing his clothes and resisting officers by tying himself to a table, crawling under it and demanding to be Tased.

The Williston Herald reports corrections staff eventually got Huckstep under control and put him in a restraint chair.

The West Fargo man has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder in the May 2012 shooting that left Kenneth Moore, of Boise, Idaho, paralyzed from the chest down. Authorities say the shooting stemmed from a drug dispute.

Huckstep's attorney did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment Friday.
