FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota judge threw a juror in jail for skipping out of a medical malpractice trial.

KFGO-AM reports (https://bit.ly/1I98yxO ) that East Central District Judge Wade Webb issued a bench warrant for the arrest of Jay Willis after Willis failed to show up on the second day of trial in Fargo. The trial went on with eight jurors instead of nine.

Cass County Deputy Tom Hall says Willis, of West Fargo, agreed to turn himself in and spent two days in jail.

A phone number for Willis could not be located.
