Fargo police use stun gun, arrest 4 in Taco John’s parking lot fight
By Josh Francis Today at 7:58 p.m.FARGO – Police used a stun gun on one man in an incident in which two people were taken to the hospital after a fight broke out Saturday in the parking lot of the Taco John’s on 32nd Avenue South in Fargo.
Fargo police responded to a call from a Taco John’s employee at 1:36 p.m. that two groups of people – totaling about a dozen – were arguing and at least four were actively fighting. At least two people fighting had baseball bats, Fargo police Sgt. Mark Lykken said.
There was an initial report of a gun seen by a witness but police said there was no gun found at the scene.
Two brothers, Sejad Halilovic, 25, and Denis Halilovic, 19, and their father Senad Halilovic, 45, all of Fargo, were arrested for simple assault. The two brothers were also charged with resisting a police officer, and Sejad was also charged with failure to obey a lawful order to stop an impending assault.
Manuel Golubovic, 20, of Fargo, one of the men the three were allegedly fighting, was also charged with simple assault. All four men were booked into Cass County Jail, Fargo police said.
An officer used a stun gun on Sejad Halilovic after police say he ran toward someone in the opposing group while police were on scene investigating the incident. At least five officers responded to the fight.
The fight allegedly erupted because some people in the two groups knew each other through playing recreational soccer together and one of the members allegedly stole property from another, Lykken said.
Two people were transported to the hospital, one with minor injuries due to the fight. A woman who fainted during the fight was also taken to the hospital.
