**MEDIA RELEASE**

It's been a busy start to 2021 for Dickinson PD. Here's a summary of three critical incident calls we've responded to in the past few days;

- The first occurred on the evening of January 9th when patrol officers responded to a report of a domestic assault in east Dickinson on Saturday afternoon. Upon arriving, officers developed probable cause to arrest 37-year-old Sheldon Gordon of Dickinson for Aggravated Assault. While being transported to jail, Gordon maneuvered his handcuffs to in front of his body and began damaging the back seat and video equipment of the patrol vehicle. Upon arrival at the Southwest Multi-County Correction Center (SWMCCC), Gordon then allegedly bit a Dickinson police officer and also allegedly assaulted a correctional staff member. The Stark County State’s Attorney has formally filed charges of Domestic Violence Aggravated Assault, two counts of Assault on a Peace Officer, Criminal Mischief, and Terrorizing. He remains incarcerated at the SWMCCC.

No injuries of peace officers were serious.

- A second critical incident developed in the city of Belfield on Monday evening. Belfield Police Department requested the assistance of Dickinson’s Southwest Tactical Team in arresting a male who allegedly discharged a firearm and also brandished the firearm at others while threatening them. The team arrived in the city shortly before midnight. During the incident, the team’s negotiators were able to make contact with the suspect, identified as 30-year-old Thomas Lefevre, who subsequently surrendered without incident a little after one o’clock in the morning. He was transported to the SWMCCC and is awaiting formal charges from the Stark County State’s Attorney.

- A third incident occurred yesterday evening near Champ’s Sports Bar in the 1100 block of West Villard. North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents had been assisting Cass County and federal officials in locating a wanted subject, who was believed to be in Dickinson. Agents tracked the subject, identified as 28-year-old Joshua McCleary of Wheatland, ND, to the establishment. As Dickinson patrol officers began coordinating a response to assist, McCleary emerged from the premises and entered a vehicle. Officers attempted to stop McCleary, but he proceeded to ram a Dickinson Police unit. A short foot pursuit followed, with McCleary being taken into custody without further incident. He was transported to the SWMCCC where he was served his active warrants and will be facing additional charges from the Stark County State’s Attorney later today.

No officers were injured in this incident.
