Cobb being taken to State Hospital for evaluation

STANTON, N.D. -- Craig Cobb, the white supremacist trying to create an all-white enclave in the town of Leith, is heading to the North Dakota State Hospital in Jamestown for an evaluation.

KXMB-TV in Bismarck reported Friday that according to Mercer County Sheriff Dean Danzeisen, Cobb has not eaten since he arrived at the Mercer County Jail nine days ago. He was arrested Nov. 17 on felony terrorizing charges for approaching Leith residents with loaded firearms.

Danzeisen told KXMB that Cobb was taken to a clinic in Beulah on Friday to be evaluated and that medical professionals referred him to the State Hospital.

Cobb has been treated like every other inmate and given three meals a day, Danzeisen told the station. But Cobb has refused to eat.

Cobb and Kynan Dutton, another white supremacist, are charged in Grant County with terrorizing and are being held in the Mercer County Jail without bond.
