57-year old Mitchell Lee Walck was arrested Wednesday after he threatened a trucker with a gun in Bismarck. A week ago, Walck's crime spree began in Northern Idaho, where he took off from a traffic stop. He shot at the trooper during the pursuit and then holed up in a Rathdrum house. He kidnapped an elderly woman and headed east, eventually releasing her in Glendive.
Walck showed up in Bismarck when he climbed into the sleeper cab of a semi, threatening the driver with a gun. He ran off, but was followed by a citizen who helped police find Walck hiding under a tree.
The Bismarck Tribune reports Walck appeared in court Thursday and was charged with terrorizing, unlawful entry o the truck, possession of stolen property and being a felon with a gun.
Walck's last known address was Thompson Falls. He'd been in trouble before, serving prison time for a standoff with Powell County deputies in 2001.
