District Court

Kandiyohi County

n Lauren Jacob Weber, 41, of Sauk Rapids, made his first appearance Monday on a felony charge of domestic assault.

Unconditional bail was set at $15,000. His next appearance is Oct. 10.

According to the complaint, Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s deputies were called around 11:45 p.m. Friday to the American Legion club in Spicer on a report of an assault. A man, later identified as Weber, approached the first deputy who arrived. Weber explained that he and a woman were driving from Willmar to Spicer and had an argument, and that he’d instinctively head butted the woman when she put her face close to his face.

The woman had blood on her face and clothing and confirmed what Weber told the deputy. A witness, who had placed the 911 call reporting the incident, had observed the assault in the club’s parking lot.

Weber has two prior convictions for fifth-degree and domestic assault, in 2004 and 2005.
