FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Cass County jail employee has been suspended for a day without pay and ordered to attend some meetings for posting a video on social media that many considered offensive.

Deputy Tamara Holland admitted posting a video on Tik Tok that featured a Native American caricature and received a considerable amount of negative feedback.

Sheriff Jesse Jahner says Holland will be required to attend meetings of the Fargo Human Relations and Native American Commissions as part of an agreement to keep her job at the jail.
