Bond set for Fargo man accused of running over officer

FARGO — Bond has been set at $250,000 for a Fargo man accused of stabbing a man, choking a woman and running over a police officer.

Forty-nine-year-old Jack Christensen faces five charges including aggravated assault. He was arrested early Tuesday following a nearly six-hour standoff at a north Fargo home.

Authorities allege Christensen struck 25-year-old officer Brent Malone with his van in a laundry parking lot Monday night. Police say Malone was treated at a hospital for a significant injury and was released but will need further medical treatment.

Police were looking for Christensen on Monday so they could talk to him about the alleged stabbing and choking incidents.

Defense attorney Monty Mertz did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
