NDSU standout linebacker charged with felony assault

FARGO – North Dakota State star linebacker Travis Beck was charged with felony aggravated assault in Cass County District Court on Monday, the result of 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 $325 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 finished second on the team in tackles last season with 98, including nine for lost yardage. He had three quarterback sacks and forced four fumbles. He is probably best known for being the most valuable player in the 2011 Division I Football Championship Subdivision title game, a victory that was the first of NDSU’s back-to-back national titles.

Known for his speed and toughness, he played every down of the 14-1 season that ended with a 39-13 win over Sam Houston State (Texas) in Frisco, Texas.

NDSU head coach Craig Bohl could not be immediately reached for comment.
