NDSU Football: Prosecutors drop felony assault charge against Bison linebacker

Well, Travis Beck will be back on the team, everything will be alright. NDSU can move forward with their star linebacker on the team. Beck will still have to answer to the resisting arrest charges.
Forum Staff Reports, Inforum -- Prosecutors in Cass County have scheduled a news conference for 2:30 p.m. today to address the felony assault charge pending against a star linebacker for North Dakota State University’s football team.

Travis Beck, 21, is accused of punching a man in the head multiple times in what began as a verbal fight in a downtown Fargo bar on Saturday night and Sunday morning, allegedly leaving the man unconscious on the sidewalk.

Beck was arrested on Sunday morning and charged Monday in Cass County District Court with one count of Class C felony aggravated assault.

Defense attorney Bruce Quick said earlier this week that Beck is cooperating fully with the ongoing police investigation.

“There’s much more to this case that what’s gotten out there,” Quick said.
As a tax paying citizen of ND, I want these charges of resisting arrest to remain, I don't want them thrown out. The Average citizen cannot just walk away from the cops when they command you to stop and just because you’re an athlete doesn’t make your special. If you’re innocent you stop.
