DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) — A Devils Lake airport security officer is charged with assaulting his roommate and threatening him with a pistol.

Robert Jensen of Brinsmade is accused of shoving his roommate July 13 during an argument after Jensen came home from a bar.

Court papers say the man then fled after Jensen threatened him with a gun. Jensen is charged with felony terrorizing, which carries a possible five-year prison term.

Jensen was also charged with simple assault last September for pushing a woman against a wall and shoving a 12-year-old child to the ground. The woman's arm was bruised and the child suffered an injured ankle.

The Forum reports ( ) that Jensen has been a federal Transportation Security Administration security officer since 2002. He's worked at the Devils Lake airport since 2004.
