FARGO, ND — The Cass County State’s Attorney’s office has decided not to charge a man in a fight with an NDSU student.
Prosecutors say there were conflicting accounts of what happened when Isaiah Smith, a junior from Brainerd, was injured in a park near campus earlier this month.
Smith told police that he confronted a man who he believed was responsible for an earlier domestic assault on a woman he knows.
He was placed in a chokehold and passed out.
Smith suffered a broken jaw and other injuries.
Police interviewed several witnesses as part of the investigation and determined that Smith and others had been drinking prior to the dispute.
