Some people in North Dakota make bad decisions in the heat of the moment that can come back to haunt them. When arguing with others, some people will take matters into their own hands to try and end the argument. Two men in Fargo were recently arrested and accused them of firing a pellet rifle during the course of an argument.
Incident and arrests
Around 4:20 a.m. on July 14, police in Fargo were called to a scene on 42nd Street South. At the location was an apartment, and reportedly, a heated argument had arisen among the occupants. Reports say the parties took the matter outside.
During the outside argument involving several people, someone supposedly fired a pellet rifle into the air. The person was identified at a 25-year-old man, and he allegedly discharged the weapon four times. Following that, another man, 23, is said to have taken the gun and began firing at others involved in the argument. No one suffered harm from the shots, and the two men are facing charges for terrorizing and reckless endangerment.
Right to defense
Despite the fact the alleged weapon was a pellet gun, the charges these men face are serious. Each man could spend considerable time behind bars, and a conviction of a felony count will adversely affect all areas of their life. As such, each of the accused will want to work with an experienced criminal defense attorney in North Dakota to help increase his chances for obtaining the best outcome possible.
