Benjamin James Bellanger, 33, of Box 351 White Earth has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony domestic assault.
According to court records, on Jan. 24 a Callaway-Ogema police officer was dispatched on the report of an incident outside the Ogema Liquor Store.
He found a woman lying on the ground next to a parked vehicle. She told the officer that Bellanger had thrown her down and hit her, then fled the area on foot. He was arrested a short time later.
Bellanger appeared Tuesday before District Judge Joe Evans, who set bail or bond at $25,000 and set his next court appearance for Feb. 8.
