Fair Manager Charges Dropped

Prosecutors in Fargo, N.D., have dropped a theft charge against former Red River Valley Fair manager Bruce Olson for lack of evidence.

Olson was accused of pocketing $5,500 that was part of a payment for a 2005 Doobie Brothers concert, among other accusations.

Prosecutors said the evidence wouldn’t hold up in court, according to the city’s Forum. Olson, who was fired in 2005, denied all allegations, the paper said.
