Man accused of head-butting and injuring West Fargo police officer after weekend foot chase


WEST FARGO, North Dakota — West Fargo police arrested a man accused of head-butting an officer who tried to place him under arrest.

Authorities say the 29-year-old suspect from Moorhead, Minnesota, fled the scene of a traffic stop just before midnight Saturday. When the officer caught up with him, the man allegedly resisted and head-butted the officer.

Other officers eventually got the suspect into custody. They also later found and arrested a 35-year-old West Fargo man who was a passenger in the vehicle and left the scene.

The officer who was head-butted was treated at a hospital and released.
