FARGO — The man accused of the attacking a 14-year-old middle school girl in Fargo had pleaded guilty to resisting arrest after he ran from cops on Memorial Day following a fight at Fort Noks Bar of Gold in downtown Fargo. He paid a $400 fine.

Arthur Kollie's criminal background includes a half dozen run-ins with the law, some of them minor traffic violations, small drug charges and criminal trespass.

In 2017, when Kollie was at the North Dakota Youth Correctional Center for reasons that are sealed as all juvenile cases are, he was charged with assault on a corrections officer and disorderly conduct as an adult since he had turned 18.

Kollie had punched a corrections guard in the face multiple times. He spent six months in jail for that offense.

In December 2020, Kollie was arrested for firing a gun inside his Fargo apartment while drunk. He was not allowed to have guns after his conviction for beating up the corrections officer. Investigators also found drugs in the apartment. Kollie was placed on probation for 18 months and ordered to undergo a diagnostic assessment.

He told police he suffers from anxiety, depression and multiple personality disorder.

Before his arrest, Kollie was living at Stepping Stones Resource Center, which provides independent living services for people with special needs.
