  • More security needed around Roger Maris Museum?

    Jul 27, 2016 | via Valley News Live 

    Hindsight being 20/20, many of us are asking a day later, how was it that someone could so easily and so quickly steal a piece of Fargo history when they broke into the Roger Maris Museum early Tuesday? Mall officials report they have a guard stationed 24/7 outside the exhibits, and they are exploring new long term security measures. So does there need to be more security around such high value items? Someone stole a piece of Fargo, smashing into the West Acres Mall and making off with a Roger Maris MVP plaque and the S. Rae Hickok award.

Can the Mn department of public safety impose drivers license reinstatement requirements on a ND resident?
I was charged with dui in ND 9 months after moving to north Dakota from Minnesota but never switched my drivers license over. I am having complications reinstating my license due to MN department of public safety saying my chemical dependancy evaluation does not meet their requirements. Is the Mn DPS outside of their jurisdiction in imposing reinstatement requirements?
No. If you had a MN DL when charged then you must reinstate your MN driving privileges before ND will issue a DL....
Why would someone get charged with "Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs" VS. being charged with a DUI?
An acquaintance of mine just got charged with "Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs". Were they more than likely on drugs then drinking since they didn't receive a DUI?
The ND DUI law covers both alcohol and drugs under one statute so I don't think you can say one way or the other if the...
Jail time for a DUI without ever having a drivers license
Was driving while under the influence a week ago and flipped a company truck 3 times and totaled it while drunk. I have court summons next month for this incident, I'm just looking to see how much time I'll be serving in jail for this. Thanks
Need more facts... Are you a minor? Was your licence suspended / revoked / never obtained one? How did you manage to...
I was cited with a minor in consumption of alcohol. Wondering if pleading guilty or not guilty will be better
I got a minor in consumption of alcohol citation and have court on Friday morning. I requested the police report and it is not very accurate. It says I admitted to drinking, but I did not. They never got a Breathalyzer because I had an anxiety attack (due to an officer yelling and calling me names, also not on report). I turn 21 in 3 months and am wondering if this is worth fighting or if I should just plead guilty and pay the fine? Also, what is the longest this will be on my record? I live in North Dakota and have a clean record.
Convictions dont go away. Talk to a local traffic or criminal law attorney. Search for one here on AVVO by using...
My ex husband got a dui fourteen month ago. I moved to another state. His time is over but hasn't changed the plates.
I moved from mn to nd and wondering if nd will change my plates from mn whiskey plates to regular nd plates without him?
If you are living in ND permanently, then you should have the plates switched over. It will save future hassle.
I had a BAC blood test done, I was told it could take up to six months for results. How can I find out if it has been done.
I was arrested for a possible DUI in Minnesota. The officer pulled me over and said I had crossed the center line. I agreed to a field test which I did not know I could refuse. The officer would not tell me if I passed the eye test. I told him I could not do the balance tests because of a post concussion, but I had to do it anyway and he did not need to tell me I did not pass. I had a 0 on the breathalyser. I was arrested and had a blood test for alcohol and drugs. I had another breathalyser test and a urine test and both were negative. This happened over 4 months ago
Perhaps you have nothing to worry about. Do you have a court date? Otherwise, I'm sure you'll be notified one way or...
