SIOUX FALLS, S.D (AP) - A former Sioux Falls teacher is under arrest on charges he had sexual contact with a minor.

A Sioux Falls police spokesman said Daylan Scott Fargo, 27, was arrested Monday in Hall County, Nebraska. Fargo faces three charges, including sexual contact with a child under 16, sexual exploitation of a minor and solicitation of a minor.

Fargo is a former assistant choir director at Washington High School. The Argus Leader reports Fargo resigned from his position two days before a parent filed a protection order against him last week on behalf of their son.

Fargo is being held in Nebraska on $100,000 cash bond. The Minnehaha County State's Attorney's office said Wednesday no attorney was listed for Fargo who could speak for him.

A spokeswoman for the Sioux Falls School District confirms Fargo is no longer a district employee.

BARTON COUNTY— Law enforcement authorities are investigating a Kansas felon on numerous charges after a Wednesday arrest.

Early Tuesday, police in Hoisington were searching for a suspect in an alleged aggravated battery, assault case that had occurred late Monday, according to Barton County Sheriff Brian Bellendir.

County dispatchers issued an attempt to locate for 35-year-old Timothy Chism of Great Bend. The suspect was considered armed and dangerous, according to Bellendir.

Investigators including officers from the Great Bend Police Department located Chism in a vehicle near the intersection of 12th and Morton Street in Great Bend.

Officers conducted a felony traffic stop on the Nissan Pathfinder and Chism, a passenger in the SUV, attempted to resist arrest, according to Bellendir.

An officer used a Taser when Chism reached for a knife. Officers then handcuffed Chism. During the arrest, officers found 14 knives including a meat cleaver, a garrote, meth, marijuana and other drugs, according to Bellendir.

When deputies searched Chism at the Barton County Jail, they found he had a .380 automatic pistol in a holster between his legs.
