Posted: Updated:


A former Sheriff's Deputy from Arizona accused of driving to West Fargo to beat up a man who had an affair with his wife will stand trial. Timothy Abrahamson will face a jury trial starting march 12 in Cass County court.

Abrahamson pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault last September. Authorities say the West Fargo victim suffered a torn ear, facial cuts, swelling and bruising. Abrahamson is a former detective for the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department in Arizona.


An Arizona sheriff's deputy faces a criminal charge in North Dakota after he allegedly drove to West Fargo in September and assaulted a man who had an affair with his wife.

Maricopa County deputy Timothy Abrahamson was taken into custody in Arizona on Wednesday on a North Dakota warrant for aggravated assault. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.

West Fargo police issued a statement providing details of the alleged assault, saying the victim suffered a torn right ear, and facial cuts, swelling, and bruising.

The Forum newspaper reported that Cass County prosecutors have granted immunity to another Maricopa County deputy who allegedly rode to West Fargo with Abrahamson, in exchange for the second deputy's testimony.

Abrahamson is on unpaid leave while he awaits extradition.
