Montana Sen. Shannon Augare (D), who also serves as a council member for the Blackfeet Nation, has been ordered to appear in federal court in his drunken driving case.

The Associated Press said Augare was issued a summons to appear on July 17. He's also been charged with obstructing a peace officer and reckless driving.

Augare was seen driving erratically on the reservation and was stopped by a county sheriff. He disputed the jurisdiction of the sheriff and drove away, according to documents in federal court.

A federal investigation sought surveillance video from a bar where Augare was allegedly served alcohol before he got into his car with his mother. When the vehicle eventually located by a tribal officer, his mother allegedly was in the driver's seat.

The tribe looked into the matter and referred the case to the U.S. Attorney in Montana. Augare was charged under the Assimilated Crimes Act, which allows federal prosecutors to charge people for violating crimes under state law
