A 47-year-old Fargo man pleaded guilty Tuesday in Fargo Municipal Court to drunken driving.

John Arthur Strand, 1212 Monte Carlo Drive, was ordered to pay a $500 fine, undergo a chemical dependency evaluation and attend a victim impact workshop.

Fargo Municipal Judge Tom Davies also imposed a 30-day suspended sentence.

Police records show Strand was driving 61 mph in a 40-mph zone early Nov. 16 before he was pulled over in the 3200 block of North University Drive.

Strand failed a breath test and other field tests before he was taken to MeritCare Hospital for a blood draw. He was then taken to the Cass County Jail, the report shows.

Strand, editor of the High Plains Reader, serves as the leader of a citizen's group that opposes demolition of the old Cass County Jail and helped spearhead the drive that capped the Fargo School District's mill levy earlier this year.
