Often times, Lakeville’s officers run into individuals on calls who just don’t know when to walk away and go home. Officers were dispatched to a restaurant bar and informed that a subject had been kicked out of the establishment for trying to start a fight with another patron.
The subject left, but waited outside for the other patron who walked out the front door a short time later. The subject punched the patron and ran away on foot. Unfortunately, the subject had given his full identity information to the bartender because he won a pull tab, so the officers were able to quickly identify him and make contact.
PULL TAB VENDORS – 1-855-2-BUILD-1
The subject was contacted by the officers and turned himself in. He was placed in Dakota County Jail pending formal charges for assault.
