FARGO—Outrage and shock are flooding in on social media for a restaurant that hasn't even officially opened yet. This all comes after a mother, nursing her child, was asked to leave Chick-Fil-A in Fargo. We talked with the mom who hopes something like this doesn't happen to anyone else. Seven month old Ziggy was hungry, along with her parents, which is why the Hornung's went to Chick-Fil-A's soft opening on Saturday evening, until they were asked to leave. "Just complete shock, like all I'm doing is feeding my baby," said Macy Hornung, Mother.
FARGO—Neighbors say they aren't surprised after a shooting in North Fargo left two people hurt. One man has a gunshot wound and a woman suffered a head injury. Police haven't yet made any arrests. Police began investigating late Thursday night around 11:00 when a man with a gunshot wound flagged down police. It happened right off 10th Street North, a couple blocks from the the Family Fare near the apartment building where it happened. As this scene unfolded, neighbors, like Donte Gaynor, looked on.
DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—A 15-year veteran of the Detroit Lakes Police Department is on paid administrative leave amid an investigation for what DL Chief Steven Todd calls an "off duty activity." A man, familiar to law enforcement, says that activity was a bar fight with him. At a usually quiet bar in Detroit Lakes, two men walked into the bar, Hub 41. One of them was Blake Sundvor. "It's unfortunate that two people can't reside in the same town and not be civil," said Sundvor.
FARGO—Donuts seem innocent enough, but Monday, this unlikely sweet treat was the focus of a mock trial. This inmate took to the stand, contesting that he didn't get any donuts last year on Giving Hearts Day, and that it was a crime. Jokes aside, it was all for a promotional video for a dual effort between the Jail Chaplains and the Cass County Sheriff's office. They'll sell red donuts on Giving Hearts Day to raise money for the chaplains program.
FARGO—Your iPhone wants to keep you safe with a feature emergency responders say, most don't even know about. Here's how you can find that little known button that could save your life. For most, these little devices go with us wherever we're heading, even into unfortunate, sticky situations. "They're always being updated. And sometimes, they're giving you features that are very valuable," said Mary Phillippi, Red River Regional Dispatch. One of those lesser known features? An 'SOS' button that can call 911, almost secretly.
FARGO—The YWCA says it's baby food supply is at its lowest in the last six years, but hopefully not for long. Goldmark has set up drop-off sites for an 'emergency baby food drive.' It runs through next Thursday, and they're asking for food, not baby formula. Friday marked the first full day of the drive and they were off to a strong start, with over 200 items donated in 24 hours.
FARGO—A West Fargo Dad says his 16-year-old son learned a tough lesson on safety, when he was allegedly grabbed by his neck and robbed at knifepoint. It was at the Main Stay last night when a teenager was robbed, at knifepoint, in the front of the hotel. At the request of the family, we are not naming this boy and he's a minor. The boy was shaken and drove home to tell his dad what happened. That's when his dad hopped back in the car with the boy and came back to the scene.
FARGO—Saturday, the Bison will be racing against the clock and JMU. So will a different team, ready to print Championship shirts. 'Bee Seen Gear' plans to print two different designs in Fargo. Owner Traci Weible will be keeping a close eye on the score and could start printing shirts with just five minutes of playing time if they think it's a clear cut Bison Victory. Traci said, "I'm looking forward to it very much, a little nervous depending on the score of the game. You know, if it comes down pretty close - It will be, do we print? Do we not print?"
FARGO—Attorney General Jeff Sessions is re-introducing anti-marijuana laws, even in states that have legalized it for medical or recreational purposes. The Attorney General said he plans to roll back Obama-era guidelines that paved the way for legalizing marijuana. Federal law still says marijuana, for medical or recreational use, is illegal. But many states, including North Dakota and Minnesota, have passed laws decriminalizing the drug for medical reasons.
FARGO—Furnace repair companies are putting in overtime this week. One has had as many as 600 calls for furnace fixes since Monday with 200 calls alone in the last 48 hours. One repairmen says it really isn't the cold that kills the furnaces, it's the constant use during the winter months. One Fargo family says they resorted to 'pioneer methods' to stay warm. Flames are keeping the holiday cheer alive a little longer.
