UPDATE: Deputy chief resigns from Fargo Police Department following weekend riot
Deputy Chief Todd Osmundson has now resigned from the Fargo Police Department. Fargo Police Chief David Todd originally suspended Deputy Chief Osmundson for one week of unpaid leave, effective immediately.
Osmundson was reportedly seen in the crowd of protesters undercover on May 30, holding a beer and yelling obscenities about police.
According to the release, he was acting on his own and did not have permission to do so.
Chief Todd says that Osmundson "has accepted full ownership of his actions.”
