- Pedro Martin III, 28, of Willmar, was sentenced Thursday to 18 months in prison, which was stayed, five years of probation, 92 days in jail and a $1,000 fine on a felony charge of domestic assault.

He was also ordered to follow the recommendations of a domestic abuse evaluation and a chemical use assessment and stay a reasonable distance from the victim’s residence and place of employment.

Martin was charged in connection with a June 13 incident in the southeast part of town where a woman told Willmar police that Martin had assaulted her because she did not make the breakfast he wanted to eat.

She said he threw an omelet on her plate and smeared butter on her forehead and in her hair. He then grabbed her and pushed her into the bathtub, where she fell backwards.

Martin was located by another officer and arrested. He denied any physical altercation and denied smearing butter on her face or forcing her into the bathroom.

Another adult said Martin walked the woman to the bathroom, turned on the water and closed the door. However, a child told officers that the incident happened as the victim had reported.
