Police say a man beaten in front of a strip club in the North Dakota oil boomtown of Williston died of his injuries.
Detective David Peterson says 25-year-old Dean Niederklopfer was pronounced dead at a Minot hospital mid-Saturday, after being beaten early Friday. Peterson says Niederklopfer is an "innocent victim."
Police in an affidavit say witnesses observed 29-year-old Kyle Siler hitting Niederklopfer with a closed fist. The affidavit says a video seen by police shows Siler's girlfriend, Jessica Gibson, filming the incident. The pair was apprehended in South Dakota late Friday.
Siler was arrested on an aggravated assault warrant and Gibson on a warrant for hindering law enforcement.
Peterson says Siler is a former employee at the strip club Whispers.
