WAHPETON, N.D. (AP) — A Richland County sheriff’s deputy suffered minor injuries in a scuffle with a drunken driving suspect over the weekend.

The sheriff’s office says 49-year-old Darrel Loeb, of Breckenridge, Minnesota, fought with deputies while being handcuffed during a traffic stop on Interstate 29 in southeastern North Dakota on Saturday evening.

The deputy who was injured was treated at a hospital in Breckenridge and released. The sheriff’s office didn’t name him.

Loeb faces several charges including drunken driving, simple assault on a law officer and trying to disarm a law officer. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.
