WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Trial is nearing for a former West Fargo police officer accused of assaulting his girlfriend.

Allen Schmidt is to stand trial March 20 on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge stemming from the incident last December in which he allegedly hit Sheila Windt and grabbed her arm.

Schmidt has pleaded not guilty. He resigned from the police department in January.

Windt initially also was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly ripping a lip ring from Schmidt's mouth and biting his chest, but prosecutors later dismissed the count.
