FARGO, ND (trfnews.i234.me) – In a dramatic altercation, Mohamedkadar Farah of Fargo is facing criminal charges after confronting an officer with a rock. The incident unfolded on April 23rd on the railroad tracks at the 2200 block of Maine Avenue.

According to authorities, Farah was sitting on the tracks when approached by an officer. Despite attempts at conversation, Farah responded aggressively, uttering profanities. When asked about his well-being, Farah’s demeanor escalated, and he grabbed a large rock, advancing towards the officer while shouting threats.

Despite repeated warnings, Farah refused to drop the rock, prompting the officer to deploy a taser. Farah was subdued, arrested, and charged with felonies including terrorizing and preventing arrest.

This incident underscores the challenges officers face in de-escalating volatile situations. Body camera footage from another incident, where a woman was tased after refusing to drop a knife, highlights the effectiveness of tasers in diffusing dangerous encounters.
