Pull tabs good news for Florida, not so good for this guy


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.


The subject was contacted by the officers and turned himself in. He was placed in Dakota County Jail pending formal charges for assault.
