A former employee of the casino owned by the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation is pleading guilty for assaulting a tribal police officer.

Max Garett Moede reached a plea agreement in which he admits to assaulting officer Andres Martinez in January. He faces up to 20 years in prison but federal prosecutors will recommend a sentence of 12 to 18 months, The Minot Daily News reported.

According to court documents, Moede is non-Indian. He was employed at the 4 Bears Casino and Lodge and lived in a trailer at the facility's recreational vehicle park.

But he was apparently "terminated" from his job at the casino, according to a an affidavit submitted by a special agent from the Bureau of Indian Affairs. The loss of his job may have caused him to intentionally set fire to the trailer in the RV park -- an incident that preceded the alleged assault.

Moede is due back in court on Tuesday, The Daily News reported.
