 GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- A Virginia man has pleaded not guilty to charges
related to a Montana highway chase in which he is accused of throwing pipe bombs
at pursuing officers.
   The Great Falls Tribune reports  Laurence Alan Stewart II entered his plea Thursday
 before District Judge Kenneth Neil in Great Falls.
   Stewart has been charged with attempted deliberate homicide and criminal
endangerment. He was arrested near Belt Nov. 1 after authorities say he led officers
 on a 40-mile chase in a stolen car while throwing pipe bombs that exploded near
 his pursuers.
   Prosecutors say Stewart also has 13 outstanding warrants in Virginia for
allegedly detonating pipe bombs at homes there.
   Stewart is in custody in lieu of $2 million bail. A trial date has been set
for March 18.
