A Willmar man has been charged after an incident in Hutchinson Saturday in which police had to tase him.
Thirty-two-year-old Jacob Thomas Dahlheimer is charged with one count of felony domestic assault.
At just before 1pm, Hutchinson Police responded to the report of a domestic assault in progress at Casey’s General Store on Highway 7 East.
When officers arrived, the victim said she and Dahlheimer, her boyfriend, had been driving when they began to argue. When she pulled over and he got out of the vehicle, he allegedly punched her and broke her cell phone. At the time, the victim said Dahlheimer had a handgun in his waistband.
Officers located Dahlheimer walking about two blocks away and when an officer approached him and asked him to show his hands, he reached toward his waistband, made threats against the officer and his family, began running toward the officer, and he also yelled “shoot me.” Authorities say the officer eased back until he ultimately had to tase Dahlheimer to subdue him. At that time, was taken into custody. Authorities also discovered that Dahlheimer had an active warrant out of Kandiyohi County for a probation violation on an original charge of felony domestic assault.
After his arrest, he was taken to the McLeod County Jail.
Police say they did not locate the gun.
