BEMIDJI, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- A man is hospitalized in Fargo after stabbing himself during a stand-off with Bemidji area authorities.

Beltrami County Sheriff Phil Hodapp says deputies and BCA agents went to a home yesterday to arrest a man wanted on criminal sexual conduct charges when he barricaded himself inside a bedroom.

Officers heard the sound of a gun being loaded and called for additional back-up officers.

Authorities were able to talk Wendell Lee Olson into surrendering, but then discovered he had stabbed himself three times in the chest with a steak knife.
