WILLMAR - A Lakeville man faces a felony charge of first-degree criminal damage to property for allegedly damaging a vehicle during a road rage incident reported in June in Spicer.
Dylan Michael Gergen, 22, made his first appearance on the charge Wednesday. He also faces a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
Gergen was given the option Wednesday of being released on his own recognizance or posting $10,000 unconditional bail. An omnibus hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 14.
According to the criminal complaint on the charges, the incident was reported the night of June 25 in the 300 block of Lake Avenue South. A man at the scene told law enforcement that he was driving westbound on Lake Avenue when he came across two men who were allegedly skateboarding in the middle of the road. The driver said he honked his horn and had to swerve to avoid hitting the two men.
The skateboarders were later identified as Gergen and another man.
At this point, Gergen and the other skateboarder allegedly starting yelling at the man, pounding on his vehicle and saying they wanted to fight.
A Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s sergeant noticed a dent on the hood of the man’s vehicle. The man said he thought Gergen caused the damage.
Gergen allegedly admitted to pounding on the hood of the man’s vehicle, but said he hit the hood with an open hand and did not think he could have caused the dent.
The total repair estimate of the vehicle totaled $1,191, according to the criminal complaint.

WILLMAR - Tracy Donald Swart, 42, of Kandiyohi, made his first court appearance Wednesday on two felony charges of depriving parental rights.
Swart was released on his own recognizance Wednesday and will make his next court appearance Oct. 7.
According to the criminal complaint on the charges, a woman called police at 10 p.m. June 25 and said Swart was supposed to return her children to her at 10 a.m. that day. She said one of her children came home around noon, but two of her other children were likely at Swart’s house.
A sergeant with the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office went to Swart’s residence and allegedly could see the two children inside.
While talking with the sergeant, Swart allegedly began yelling. When asked if he would return the kids the next day, he said he would not because it was going to be his turn for custody that weekend.
