Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) - A Minnesota man is pleading guilty to trying to sell cocaine to an off-duty sheriff's deputy, outside a downtown Fargo bar.

Police say Adam Smith of Otsego, Minnesota, approached the deputy outside of Sidestreet Grille & Pub and asked if the deputy would like to buy some "blow."

The deputy called police, who arrange a drug buy with Smith.

Smith faces up to to 20 years in prison.

Sentencing is being delayed for 4-weeks after Smith's attorney applied to have the case transferred to drug court, which normally results in reduced jail time.
