Funding for government lapses as short-term spending bill stalls in the Senate

Charges against Scott Wagar dismissed

WILLMAR -- The remaining charges against Scott Edward Wagar have been dismissed by Judge Michael J. Thompson for insufficient probable cause.

In two orders, filed Monday and today in Kandiyohi County District Court, dismisses the remaining misdemeanor theft charge, stemming from a Sept. 16 homecoming incident that included spraying teens with a squirt gun filled with water and fox urine, and a felony for receiving stolen property charge for allegedly possessing stolen, military-issue night vision goggles used in the incident.

Thompson had taken both cases under advisement during a Feb. 25 hearing. Wagar's son, Thomas Albert Wagar, 24, of Minneapolis, also faces the same felony charge. His next court appearance is April 24.
