He tried to gain control of the plywood, but stepped on a loose piece of plywood and slid off the roof.

    FARGO, ND - U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon will join North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem and Truckers Against Trafficking Executive Director Kendis Paris in addressing the topic of Human Trafficking in North Dakota at the North Dakota Motor Carriers Association Annual Convention at the Ramada Plaza Suites in Fargo at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14, 2014.

    Purdon said, "Attorney General Stenehjem and I are pleased to join Truckers Against Trafficking and the North Dakota Motor Carriers Association in the discussion of human trafficking. Human trafficking is a growing concern for law enforcement here in North Dakota. While Attorney General Stenehjem and I are working together to address this issue, we recognize that we need help in these efforts. Our friends at Truckers Against Trafficking and North Dakota Motor Carriers know that members of the trucking industry and individual truckers are invaluable in the fight against this heinous crime. As the eyes and ears of our nation's highways, they are in a unique position to make a difference and close loopholes to traffickers who seek to exploit our transportation system for their personal gain. We look forward to working with these great partners to stamp out this horrible crime."

    Following remarks by U.S. Attorney Purdon and Attorney General Stenehjem, Kendis Paris from Truckers Against Trafficking will present to the NDMCA on training opportunities that Truckers Against Trafficking can make available to individual trucking companies so they can continue their assistance in the effort to fight human trafficking in North Dakota.

     WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Oil, gas and fracking fluid is leaking from an oil well near Tioga days after local authorities learned about the problem.  Williams County emergency coordinator Mike Hallesy says he was notified Friday evening and the leak hasn't stopped. But he says it has been contained by berms.
 
     Department of Mineral Resources spokeswoman Alison Ritter says the well is protected by a confidentiality agreement, so her office can only confirm that a spill has occurred and give the general location of the well and its owner. Information about confidential wells is withheld from the public for up to six months.
 
     Denver-based Emerald Oil owns the well.  A well control company connected to Halliburton has been called in to try to stop the flow.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck police say a man who detectives had questioned regarding an armed robbery at a pharmacy has been released because of insufficient evidence.
 
     Officers responded to The Medicine Shoppe around 10:15 a.m. Monday after receiving calls about a man threatening an employee with a knife. The man fled on foot into a nearby apartment building but was arrested after leaving the building.  It was not immediately clear if the suspect took anything from the drug store.
 
     The suspect is described as a male, 5 foot 10 inches tall, wearing a light-colored sweatshirt, cap, sunglasses and a mask.

     GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - University of North Dakota president Robert Kelley is condemning a decision by some young people to create and wear T-shirts with a caricature of the school's former Indian head logo drinking out of a beer bong.
 
     The words "Siouxper Drunk" are featured above the drawing, a reference to the school's Fighting Sioux nickname that was retired in 2012. Group photos of people wearing the T-shirts have been posted on several websites.
 
     Kelley said in a statement issued Monday that the message on the shirts demonstrates "an unacceptable lack of sensitivity and a complete lack of respect for American Indians and all members of the community."  Kelley says the T-shirts are associated with an annual spring party that is not a university event.
