Minot Police Officer Suffers Broken Hand During Arrest

Posted: Updated:
A Minot Police officer suffered a broken hand over the weekend while trying to arrest a Minot man for drug charges.

It happened at 415 9th Avenue NE on Sunday night.

The officer was trying to arrest 29-year-old Justin Peterson when he started fighting with the officers.

During the struggle, one officer suffered a broken hand.

He was eventually restrained and taken to the Ward County Jail.

He has been charged with not only aggravated assault on a police officer, but also with preventing arrest and possession of meth.

Three others were also charged with crimes as a result of the incident.

25 year old Devin Kampman faces marijuana related charges, 46-year-old Troy Berger or Minot was arrested for an outstanding warrant, and Justin Peterson's mother, 57-year-old Brenda Peterson was charged with obstruction of a government function for allegedly interfering with her son's arrest.
