On Jan. 17 a Detroit Lakes police officer received an anonymous tip that Craft had allegedly borrowed a shotgun to go deer hunting. He is prohibited from possessing a firearm because of a conviction for third-degree burglary in 2000, according to court records. Investigation allegedly revealed that he had borrowed an 8mm bolt-action Mauser and gone hunting with two other people the first weekend of deer hunting.

On Thursday, District Judge Lisa Borgen issued a summons for him to appear in court March 31.
