West Fargo Woman Lands in Jail, 3 Assaults in One Night

Posted: Updated:

A fight with two strangers and a cop, all in one night, landed a West Fargo woman in jail late Saturday evening. 26 year old Amy Lebus was arrested just before midnight in downtown Fargo.

She was allegedly walking down Broadway when a man crossed her path and said something to aggravate her. She ended up punching him. Minutes later she dropped her phone and when a different man gave it back to her, she punched him in the face, knocking out some of his teeth. The violence didn't stop there. A Fargo police officer was also punched in the face trying to apprehend her. According to Sgt. Kevin Volrath of the Fargo Police, Lebus now faces some serious charges. "Bottom line both the assault on the officer and the aggravated assault are both C felonies which she could serve up to 5 years in prison and a five thousand dollar for. And the assault on the officer, also adds a potential civil lawsuit."

The man who got his teeth knocked out needed medical attention, but the other man and the officer are both fine. If a civil lawsuit is pursued for assaulting an officer, Lebus could be fined an additional 10 thousand dollars.
