WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A West Fargo police officer is accused of drunken driving.

The Police Department says a Cass County deputy arrested 38-year-old Weston Christianson about 2 a.m. on New Year’s Day.

The sheriff’s office is handling the criminal case. The Police Department says it will conduct a separate administrative investigation.

Christianson has worked for the West Fargo Police Department since November 2013 and currently serves as a school resource officer. He previously worked for the Burleigh County Sheriff’s Office.

It was not immediately clear if Christianson has an attorney. Calls to a home telephone listing did not go through on Monday.
