FARGO — Prosecutors have dropped charges connected to a fatal motorcycle crash in West Fargo, but the woman accused of drinking and driving before crashing her SUV into the bike could still face prosecution.


Misdemeanor counts of DUI and driving with a suspended license against 28-year-old Taquoya Nike Saldana of West Fargo were dismissed April 19, according to court records. The order said the case was dropped without prejudice, meaning prosecutors could still seek charges against Saldana. Full story here.

FARGO — The city of Fargo has fired Finance Director Terri Gayhart after the city's internal investigation uncovered allegations such as name-calling and gender bias that had employees “dreading” coming into work each day.

Fargo Chief Communications Officer Gregg Schildberger confirmed in an email to The Forum that the city terminated Gayhart's employment on Wednesday, May 17.

Gayhart was put on paid administrative leave on March 31 by Fargo City Administrator Michael Redlinger, according to city records. An internal investigation then began into "reports of a toxic work environment within the finance department, as well as deficient performance as the finance director," Redlinger wrote in the March letter.
