FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA — Red Fawn Fallis, the woman arrested for allegedly firing three shots at Standing Rock during a confrontation with law enforcement in October 2016, is back in jail on Thursday night.

Fallis, who reportedly will enter a plea agreement on Monday for the 2016 incident at Standing Rock, was arrested by U.S. Marshalls at Centre, Inc. in Fargo, North Dakota for allegedly not being where she was supposed to be earlier in the day, according to sources.

She was arrested without incident after about 5:00 p.m. after a federal warrant was issued.

The warrant was issued based on a petition filed by Fallis’ pretrial services officer late Thursday afternoon. The petition states “The defendant signed out of Centre Inc. at 8:05 this morning to attend her GED courses at the Adult Learning Center located at 1305 9th Ave South in Fargo, North Dakota.”

At 2:24 p.m., Centre staff went to the Adult Learning Center and the defendant was not present. Centre staff asked the Adult Learning Center staff if the defendant was present on Thursday and were told that the defendant did not attend class. A source tells Native News Online, there was a miscommunication between Fallis and Centre officials.

The news of a plea agreement was announced on Tuesday.

Fallis is being held in the Cass County Detention Center pending an appearance in court.
