FARGO, N.D. — A Moorhead, Minnesota, man accused of making threats to a hospital in neighboring Fargo, North Dakota, has pleaded not guilty to terrorizing.

KFGO radio reports (http://bit.ly/1wceBLf ) that Peter Rovang is accused of making several calls to Sanford Health on July 11 mentioning explosions and shootings.

Defense attorney Mark Beauchene says Rovang deals with alcoholism and a traumatic brain injury, and Beauchene is seeking to have Rovang placed in an alcohol treatment program.

Rovang could face up to five years in prison if convicted on the felony terrorizing charge.
