FARGO - A 20-year-old Fargo man accused of swinging a bat at a group of people in downtown pleaded guilty Tuesday to a felony charge of terrorizing.

Cass County District Judge Herman Douglas ordered the man, Lavester Lavonte Adams, to complete 50 hours of community service and spend a year on supervised probation. The judge also gave Adams credit for having served a day in jail.

In the early hours of Sept. 13, Adams was arrested after someone alerted a Fargo police officer that a fight was about to start in a parking lot near the Old Broadway bar, where 30 to 40 people had gathered, according to court documents.

The officer pulled his squad car into the lot and saw Adams swinging a bat at several people in the crowd and chasing people as they began to run away, court documents stated.
