  • FORT TOTTEN, N.D. (AP) — A man hired by the Spirit Lake Sioux last summer to manage the North Dakota tribe's beleaguered child protection program faces charges in an alleged domestic disturbance at a Grand Forks apartment last August.
    Thirty-four-year-old Mark Little Owl is accused of hitting the mother of his two boys with his fist, taking her cell phone and throwing one of the boys from a bedroom where the alleged incident took place.
    He's charged with theft, simple assault and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. His attorney, Patrick Rosenquist, tells the Grand Forks Herald Little Owl intends to plead not guilty. An arraignment is scheduled for March 5.
    Little Owl last fall took charge of a tribal social services program that was under fire for allegedly putting children at risk.
