North Dakota officer injured in traffic stop struggle

MINOT, N.D. (AP) — Police say an officer was injured in a struggle with a suspect during a traffic stop in Minot.

Authorities say a 28-year-old passenger wanted on an outstanding warrant was asked to step out of the vehicle Thursday and fought with the officer, injuring the officer before he was hit with a stun gun.

The driver of the vehicle drove off with the man inside. He eventually fled into an apartment building, forced his way into an occupied apartment and hid. KFGO reports police set up a perimeter and the suspect surrendered.
