Authorities say Bryce Ironhawk of McLaughlin, South Dakota, pleaded guilty Friday to misdemeanor charges of aggravated reckless driving and driving under the influence.
Officials say a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer clocked Ironhawk driving 113 mph on Highway 1806. Authorities say Ironhawk later drove through the main protest camp area, hitting flag poles and crashing into the teepee.
A man in the teepee declined medical attention.
Officials say Ironhawk had a blood-alcohol content of 0.17, more than double the legal limit, while he drove a Chevy Camaro allegedly stolen in Bismarck, North Dakota.
