FARGO — A West Fargo man pleaded guilty Monday, Dec. 3, to firing a gun at a Fargo strip club in April.

Pedro Dagdag III entered guilty pleas to charges of reckless endangerment and preventing arrest, both Class C felonies, and to one count of fleeing a peace officer, a Class A misdemeanor.

The charges stemmed from an April 11 incident at the Northern Gentlemen's Club, 325 10th St. N.

Dagdag was asked to leave the bar, and surveillance video showed him firing a gun at the bar and leaving in a truck, a ccording to Cass County District C ourt documents.

Fargo police tried to pull him over, and West Fargo police later pursued and arrested him, court documents said.


Additional charges Dagdag faced in relation to the shooting have been dismissed. He will be sentenced at a later date.

Eighteen years ago, police in Hawaii responded to a report of shots fired May 9, 2000, at a Kailua-Kona bar, according to an archived news release from the Hawaii County Police Department.

In that case, officers pursued Dagdag and lost sight of his vehicle, but later he returned to the bar and was arrested.

Police said that after an argument at the bar, Dagdag shot at four men from inside a vehicle he was a passenger in.

In that case, Dagdag was initially charged with attempted murder, but he ultimately pleaded no-contest to charges of unlawful possession of a firearm and reckless endangerment.
