Man dies weeks after Fargo strip club scuffle


Police are investigating the death of a man who died 24 days after he hit his head during an altercation outside a Fargo strip club, the Associated Press reported.

Police say reports indicate Christopher Barr, 38, was pushed by an employee at the club during the April 13 fracas at the Northern Gentleman's Club, the AP reports. Officers said he was alert but not cooperative when police arrived at the club.

Police were told May 3 that Barr had been hospitalized, and he died Tuesday.

The case is being treated as an unattended death and investigators are trying to learn more, Fargo Deputy Police Chief Pat Claus said. Investigators expect autopsy results this week.

Fights are not unheard of at the Northern, Fargo's only gentlemen's club. Police say an argument between two men over the merits of the Army versus the Marine Corps outside the club earlier this month grew into a fight, during which one man suffered a serious cut to his forearm, Forum Communications reported.
