WEST FARGO – A police officer was assaulted during the arrests of two men on drug charges outside a West Fargo hotel Wednesday, March 23, police said.

Police were called to the Element Hotel, 925 19th Ave. E., just after 3 p.m. after it was reported a man was sitting in a vehicle wearing a black ski mask.

When officers made contact with two men, Donivan Weis and Mitchell Miller, both of Fargo, Miller took off on foot, according to a West Fargo Police Department news release.

Miller was captured after a short foot pursuit, the release said.

Weis allegedly fought with an officer before police dog Disco was deployed, helping in the arrest of Weis, the release stated.

Miller was booked at the Cass County Jail on charges of possession of meth with intent to deliver within 1,000 feet of a school, fleeing police, and possession of marijuana and paraphernalia.

After being treated at Essentia Health for his injuries, Weis was booked on charges of possession of meth within 1,000 feet of a school, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest.

The West Fargo officer was also treated at Essentia for injuries and was released, the department said.

Police couldn't immediately release the amount of drugs seized during the arrests.

On Saturday, March 19, another West Fargo officer was injured while on duty. While officers were responding to a domestic disturbance report, police say Reuben Jorgenson struck an officer with a vehicle while trying to get away.

That officer had minor injuries and was treated and released from a local hospital. Jorgenson was later arrested.
