DL man in court for harassment
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

A Detroit Lakes man will make his first appearance Monday in Becker County District Court on a felony charge of domestic abuse-violating an order for protection.

Jeremy Clayton Block, 37, of 20495 Victor Road, Detroit Lakes, is accused of harassing a woman repeatedly between Nov. 23-25, despite an order for protection that had been filed on Nov. 2 and served to him on Nov. 5 that forbade him from having any contact with her.

According to the complaint, more than 100 calls or texts -- some of them threatening -- were sent from Block's phone to the alleged victim's phone during that time.

He has two prior domestic assault convictions and another for violating a protection order on his record.
