U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Bullhead man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.

Ansel White Eagle, Jr., age 37, was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 18, 2012. He appeared before U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann on August 2, 2012, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty on each count upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment, a $250,000 fine.

The charges stem from a fight that occurred on April 24, 2010, at Bullhead between the Little Eagle family and their supporters and the White Eagle family and their supporters. The charges are merely accusations, and White Eagle is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson is prosecuting the case. White Eagle was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not yet been set.
