White Earth man charged with felony domestic assault

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.
