He's since been released from the Cass County Jail. Witnesses reported the hit and run, outside the Sports Bar around two this morning. Police pulled over the suspected vehicle, a white jaquar, a short time later.

SGT. KEVIN PALLAS - Fargo Police Department: “It's a rare occurence, occasionally we'll get a hit and run involving the pedestrians with foot traffic downtown. It's certainly not something that happens often by any means.”

The victim took himself to a hospital, but has no serious injuries.
