UPDATE: Trial cancelled for former West Fargo city administrator
WEST FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) -
UPDATE May 2: The trial for Tim Solberg, a former West Fargo assistant city administrator, has been cancelled. It was set to begin Tuesday.
Court records show Solberg initially plead not guilty, but entered into a misdemeanor plea agreement Monday, pleading guilty to disorderly conduct and preventing arrest. He was sentenced to one year of unsupervised probation and given credit for the 3 days he served in jail. Solberg must also pay a $325 fine.
UPDATE April 21: The former Assistant West Fargo city administrator accused of domestic assault and resisting arrest is taking his case to trial next month.
Fargo Police were called just before midnight on Jan. 15 to Solberg’s home in the 6000 block of Osgood Parkway. Dispatch logs show Fargo Police officers were on the scene for nearly four hours.
FPD says when officers arrived, they learned a victim had been assaulted. Court documents say the victim told police that Solberg grabbed her and threw her to the ground, leaving her unconscious. The victim was later treated at a local hospital.
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.
Documents say while officers were attempting to arrest Solberg, he became uncooperative and resisted.
The City of West Fargo says Solberg’s conduct violated city policy. He was terminated from his position on Jan. 27.
Solberg’s trial is expected to start on May 3.
