DILWORTH, Minn. (AP) - A North Dakota sheriff is facing a misdemeanor charge for his role in an altercation at a bar in Minnesota.

Sargent County Sheriff Travis Paeper is charged in Clay County, Minnesota, with disorderly conduct for the May 14 incident at the Red Hen Taphouse in Dilworth.

Paeper tells KFGO radio that the charge was a surprise.

Court documents say Paeper was sitting at a table with three women who asked him to leave after he said something they didn’t like. One woman said Paeper was “grabby.” Paeper told police that a woman hit him in the face five times for no reason.

Police say Paeper was uncooperative and criticized a Dilworth officer for not “backing a brother in blue.”

Fifty-year-old Karen Beyer, of Moorhead, is also charged with disorderly conduct.
