Moorhead Man Arrested After Standoff With Police At Fargo Motel

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Police say an armed man was arrested Thursday after a nearly five-hour standoff with police that started when he barricaded himself inside a Fargo motel room.

Authorities said the 59-year-old Moorhead, Minnesota man was armed with a knife. Other guests at the motel were evacuated and the Red River Valley SWAT team was called to help police during negotiations.

The man is facing charges of terrorizing, preventing arrest and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also wanted on two unrelated warrants.
