A man died after reportedly slitting his throat with a pen or plastic shank during his sentencing hearing in North Dakota on Monday. A witness told Valley News Live that the man, who has not been identified, injured himself with a pen or plastic shank after a verdict was reached in his case—forcing marshals at Fargo Federal Court to wrestle him onto the floor. “The guy turned around and you could see the inside of his neck. He had slit his neck with some object... don’t know if it was plastic or what it was. One of the other attorneys in there said it looked like a pen, but his attorney said it looked like a scalpel,” the witness told Valley News Live. The U.S. Marshals Service confirmed to The Daily Beast that one man died after an incident at Fargo Federal Court on Monday afternoon. “The FBI is the lead investigating agency for the incident,” they said.
