Defense attorney Fred Peters entered a not guilty plea for Tristan James Hall, 31, during his district court arraignment Monday on a Jan. 26 charge of harassing communications involving his ex-girlfriend Angela Reeves.

Special Judge Skip Hammons ordered that Hall be held without bond on newest charge.
