FARGO, N.D. (AP) - An Arizona sheriff's deputy facing a criminal charge in North Dakota after allegedly driving to West Fargo and assaulting a man who had an affair with his wife has posted bond.

The Forum reports that Maricopa County Deputy Timothy Abrahamson posted a $10,000 bond and was released from custody. Abrahamson was taken into custody last week in Arizona. He posted bond there and traveled to North Dakota for Tuesday's hearing.

Prosecutor Ryan Younggren said he was worried Abrahamson's knowledge of the system could make it difficult to get him back to North Dakota for future hearings.

But Abrahamson's attorney, Ross Brandborg, says his client would waive extradition. He says Abrahamson lives in Arizona with his family and wasn't going anywhere.

Abrahamson is on unpaid leave from his job.
