West Fargo DEA Officer Allen Schmidt is being formally charged with Disorderly Conduct after appearing in court this afternoon. He plead not guilty to the misdemeanor. His bail has been set at $2,000.

Police say the 41 year-old Schmidt was arrested after an altercation at The Hub shortly after 2 this morning. A female who is not Schmidt's wife was arrested and faces the same charges.
