Jason Allen Miller, accused of running over Montana Highway Patrol trooper Lewis Johnson last month, pleaded not guilty to all charges, including attempted deliberate homicide, criminal endangerment, possession of dangerous drugs, and aggravated kidnapping.

The charges stem from a chase last month near Eureka where Miller is accused of running over Trooper Johnson as authorities tried to arrest Miller on a different warrant.

Trooper Johnson's recovery continues at Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colorado.
