Fargo man arrested for striking officer with van
FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police have arrested a man accused of hitting a police officer with his van.
KFGO radio reports that the 49-year-old man was arrested early Tuesday when he surrendered after a nearly six-hour standoff at a north Fargo home.
Authorities say the man struck 25-year-old Officer Brent Malone in a laundry parking lot Monday night when they sought him for questioning about an unrelated weekend incident. Malone was treated at a hospital for an undisclosed injury and released, but police say he will need further medical treatment.
