After missing his scheduled court date last week, an actor who appears in the Kevin Costner film "Dances With Wolves" was finally arraigned on two charges of unemployment fraud.

Rodney Grant, 31, who portrays the bold warrior Wind In His Hair, was arrested here Monday on a year-old warrant for failing to appear in court in December 1989. Deputy Lancaster County Attorney Jan Lipovsky said Grant, apparently unaware of his arraignment Wednesday, returned to face the charges Friday.

Two misdemeanor charges of obtaining Nebraska unemployment compensation by making false statements stem from two one-week periods in June and July 1988, when he allegedly was employed but received unemployment compensation. Grant was freed on a $1,500 personal recognizance bond.
