On December 10, 2012, Michael Ray Laumb, 66 of Rushford, appeared before Judge Robert Benson at the Fillmore County Courthouse. He faced charges of Assault in the 4th Degree- municipal/volunteer fire dept./emergency medical personnel, which has a maximum penalty of two years in jail, $4,000, or both. He was also charged with two counts of DWI- operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, 0.08 blood alcohol concentration within two hours, and Assault in the 5th degree- fear of bodily harm or death.

The charges stem from an incident in which an ambulance crew called the police for help with a man who was allegedly intoxicated. He allegedly admitted to driving home, and he failed sobriety tests. He resisted getting handcuffs on, and was taken to detox. An ambulance crewmember told police Laumb had allegedly squeezed her hand very hard and she was afraid for her safety.

Laumb was released on his own recognizance with $12,000 unconditional bail. His next court appearance is December 17, 2012.

Bradley Dean Schwartz, 50 of Rogers, Minn., appeared before Judge Benson for sentencing on December 10. He was found guilty of issuing a dishonored check, which has a maximum penalty of five years in jail, $10,000, or both. He was sentenced to five years supervised probation, 60 days home detention monitoring, and $2,090 in fees and fines.

Michelle Renae Root, 33 of Chatfield, was found guilty of Assault in the 3rd Degree- substantial bodily harm. She was sentenced to 30 days at the Fillmore County Jail on work release, with credit for two days served, electronic home monitoring for 30 days after serving, and five years supervised probation.
