Detroit Lakes man charged for breaking windshield

Jacob Scott Osterman, 28, of 1260 Loring Ave., No. 202, Detroit Lakes has been charged in Becker County District Court with felony first-degree criminal damage to property.

According to court records, on Sept. 27 at about 12:30 p.m. a deputy was called to the 500 block of East Main Street in Frazee. A woman there reported that Osterman had just broken the windshield on her vehicle.

He was allegedly upset when he arrived at her place. They talked a short while, and he went outside. She then heard a smashing sound, and he came back inside and asked "what happened to your windshield?"

He allegedly had used a nearby deck chair to smash the windshield and hood of her vehicle.

He refused to talk to a deputy that telephoned him to ask about the incident. The vehicle sustained more than $1,000 in damages.

On Jan. 28, District Judge Joe Evans issued a summons for him to appear in court on Feb. 23.
