Pine Ridge Man Convicted On 8 Counts In Nov Shooting That Left Victim Paralyzed



      A Pine Ridge man has been convicted on 8 federal counts in a shooting last November on the Pine Ridge Reservation in a shooting that left the victim permanently  paralyzed below the waist.

     No sentencing date has been set for 30-year old Issac Roubideaux on the charges that include assault with a dangerous weapon and assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

      The shooting occurred November 18, but Roubideaux wasn’t arrested until November 30th after a high-speed chase from the reservation to Chadron – an incident that put Chadron State College and the Chadron Public Schools on lockout status.

      Roubideaux and a female companion had abandoned their vehicle in a residential area on the east side of Chadron.

     That led to a multi-agency in-town manhunt that ended when both of them surrendered without incident to Nebraska State Patrol Sgt Mick Downing just north of downtown by the railroad tracks. 

      At the time of the shooting, Roubideaux was on 5-years federal supervised release after serving 2 years in prison for sexually abusing a teenage girl in 2013 and being sentenced for it in 2016.
