Bison linebacker to plead guilty Tuesday to alcohol charge

FARGO – North Dakota State starting outside linebacker Travis Beck will plead guilty Tuesday in Fargo Municipal Court to minor consuming alcohol, his attorney said.

A second charge of resisting a police officer will be dismissed as part of a plea agreement with the prosecution, defense attorney Bruce Quick said.

Beck, 20, was charged with the two Class B misdemeanors on July 23, two days after he allegedly ran from a police officer in the 1100 block of 16th Street North and entered a building, according to court documents. The incident happened at about 3:45 a.m.

Tuesday’s change of plea hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. before Municipal Judge Steve Dawson.

Beck, a 6-foot, 207-pound sophomore from Munich, N.D., was named the most valuable player in the Bison’s 17-6 victory over Sam Houston State in the Football Championship Subdivision title game on Jan. 7 in Frisco, Texas.
