Fargo man accused of assaulting officers

FARGO – A 30-year-old Fargo man was arrested on Monday afternoon after allegedly attacking two city police officers who were trying to talk to him about a recent domestic disturbance while serving him with an unrelated misdemeanor warrant.

Fargo police Lt. Joel Vettel said when officers made contact with the man at a home in the 900 block of College Street here Monday, he became enraged and attempted to punch them. The officers were forced to use a Taser on the man to control him, Vettel said.

Truyen Nang Nguyen was arrested and charged in Cass County District Court with two counts of Class C felony assault.

Vettel said the officers sustained minor bumps and bruises in the incident.
