FARGO, N.D. (AP) _ North Dakota State star linebacker Travis Beck has been charged with felony aggravated assault.
Beck was charged with assault Monday in East Central District Court. The charge stems from 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 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.
Beck was named the most valuable player in the 2011 Division I Football Championship Subdivision title game. It was the first of NDSU's back-to-back national titles.
NDSU head coach Craig Bohl could not be immediately reached for comment.
