One Arrested After Incident in Lester Prairie 29 Jan 13

On Thursday (1-25-13), just after 2 in the morning, the Lester Prairie Police Department was dispatched to a residence in the 200 block of Maple Street North after McLeod County Communications received a 911 call from a male who indicated six people were “threatening to kill each other.” Authorities say the caller gave a description of the location and said he would be waiting by a vehicle.

The officer arrived on scene and asked the reporting person and another male on scene what was happening. They both informed the officer that tow guys inside the residence were “going to kill or hurt them.”

It was determined the incident was a domestic dispute between two adult men and one woman. The occupants of the residence refused to allow law enforcement access to the home to check on the welfare of the occupants.

The McLeod County Sheriff’s Office, Silver Lake Police Department, and Winsted Police Department arrived on scene to assist with setting up a perimeter. After explaining why the officers needed to check on the occupants, they gained entry and all occupants of the home were fine.

22-year-old Remington Aaron Callantine of Hutchinson became very loud, boisterous, and swore at the officers on scene. He was asked to be quiet and cooperate. He did not. He was arrested for disorderly conduct, issued a citation, and booked into the McLeod County Jail. Authorities say he was held until sober and then released. His next court appearance is in March.

Charges are pending on the others involved until the investigation is reviewed by the Lester Prairie City Attorney.
