FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - Fargo Police say just before midnight on Saturday, January 15th, they were called to a home in the 6000 block of Osgood Parkway South for a report of domestic violence.

Court documents say the victim told police that Timothy Solberg grabbed her and threw her to the ground, leaving her unconscious. The victim further explained to police that Solberg grabbed her by the throat and shoved her against the wall, causing her to be “out of it.” Officers on scene report the victim had redness around her neck, chest and biceps. Officers were also able to feel a bump on the top, right side of the victim’s head.

Solberg told police the woman tried to hit him, but that she didn’t make contact and he wasn’t hurt in the incident. When officers asked Solberg if he hit the woman back, he answered, “nothing aggressive.”

Court documents say three children were inside the home at the time, two of which told police they heard a shove and something hit the wall. The two children told police they saw the woman laying on the floor, and she woke up about a minute later. A third child was asleep during the incident.

Police say Solberg resisted arrest by pulling away and disobeying commands to put his hands behind his back. He was eventually arrested for Domestic Assault - Aggravated and Felony Preventing Arrest.

Solberg is the Assistant City Administrator for the City of West Fargo and has since been placed on unpaid administrative leave following an internal investigation.
