Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- North Dakota State star linebacker Travis Beck was charged with felony aggravated assault today, the result of an incident late Saturday night outside a Fargo bar.

It was the second time Beck has had a run-in with the law in his NDSU career. He was fined $325 and sentenced to 40 hours of community service after pleading guilty to underage drinking. A charge of resisting a police officer was dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

Fargo police say Beck punched a 24 year old man several times and knocked him out at the 600 block of NP Avenue. It's a Class C felony, with a maximum penalty of 5 years in jail.

NDSU head coach Craig Bohl issued a statement on Beck; saying due to the nature of the charges of violence; Travis Beck will go thru the University judicial process as a student and as an athlete will be suspended indefinitely from the team. Bison football has zero tolerance for acts of violence.
