State News

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota district judge is facing a drunken driving charge after allegedly crashing into two parked cars in downtown Fargo.

Authorities say South Central Judicial District Judge Cherie Clark, who is based in Jamestown, was arrested after officers responded to a report of the crash about midnight Saturday.

KFGO radio reports that officers conducted standard field sobriety tests and a breath test before Clark was arrested.

A citation was issued Monday.

Clark was appointed to bench by Gov. Doug Burgum in 2017.

She previously served as a Cass County prosecutor for 11 years. Court documents do not list an attorney for Clark.
