Fargo Man Assaults Detroit Lakes Police Officer

A Detroit Lakes police officer is recovering at home after he was assaulted by a Fargo man.

Officer Joe Sternhagen hurt his shoulder during a scuffle with 31-year-old Anthony Lordson who authorities say was being investigated for stalking.

Lordson was taken out of the squad car for a more extensive pat-down when he attacked the officer.

Sternhagen was treated for a shoulder injury, bruises and scrapes to his face.

A complaint and charges against Lordson are expected to be filed tomorrow morning.
