Dad Misses Childbirth, Loses Lawsuit Against Fergus Falls Police Department

A man who was pulled over and detained while rushing his pregnant wife to the hospital has lost his lawsuit against the cops and the city of Fergus Falls.

Dennis Fronning of Battle Lake filed the suit in 2014 claiming he had been wrongfully detained.

He was stopped while rushing his wife to the hospital after complications arose during their planned home delivery.

An ambulance took his wife to the hospital where she gave birth.

Fronning was held back and missed the birth.

A judge ruled the officer’s actions didn’t rise to the level of malice and dismissed the lawsuit.
