Jury Says Sauk Rapids Police Officer Did Not Defame Man Arrested in Thomas Decker Officer Shooting C

FOLEY, Minn. (AP) - A jury has found a former Sauk Rapids sergeant did not defame a man arrested but never charged in the slaying of a police officer.

Ryan Larson sued Tom Roy after the sergeant posted online about the fatal shooting of Cold Spring Officer Tom Decker. Roy said the person that was held in custody for four days was far from innocent, referring to, but not naming Larson. The St. Cloud Times reports a Benton County jury Tuesday evening ruled Larson was not defamed.

A jury in Hennepin County reached the same conclusion last year after Larson sued the Times and KARE-TV. Decker was fatally shot in 2012 when he went to check on Larson's welfare in Cold Spring. Police later questioned another man and said they had gathered enough evidence to arrest him when he killed himself.

Police Chase Through St. Cloud Area Leads To Drug Charges

On Tuesday there was a police chase through the St. Cloud area.

According to St. Cloud police Chief Blair Anderson, an officer was attempting to pull over 35-year-old Andrew Morton and 31-year-old Stephanie Gregor on Highway 23 at 14th Avenue South a little before 10 p.m.

Morton started to pull off the road for the officer and before coming to a complete stop, sped away from the officer. This led to a police chase through St. Cloud and the surrounding area.

The chase ended when a Sartell Squad car utilized a Pursuit Intervention Technique or PIT maneuver in Sauk Rapids at Highway 10 and Summit Avenue. The whole chase lasted about 7.5 miles and no one was hurt and no property was damaged.

Morton and Gregor were throwing things out the window during the chase which lined up with packaging used for drugs. Methamphetamine was found in the car during the search and Morton, who was driving, appeared to be under the influence.

Morton was taken to Stearns County Jail and Gregor was taken to St. Cloud Hospital for observation after she indicated she may have swallowed some of the methamphetamine. Gregor's condition is unknown.

Walleye Fishing Closing On Mille Lacs Lake Until July 28

Facebook Twitter

07/05/2017 - 4:00 AM

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Walleye fishing on Mille Lacs Lake will close for three weeks as fisheries managers try to revive its walleye population.

But the lake remains open for other species. A spokesman says Gov. Mark Dayton will go bass fishing there this weekend for the second time this season. Mille Lacs was recently named the No. 1 bass lake in the nation by Bassmaster. With a ban on night fishing already in place, walleye angling on the lake effectively closes at 10:01 p.m. Thursday, and reopens at 6:01 a.m. Friday, July 28.

The closure is meant to prevent walleyes from dying after being caught and released, a tendency called hooking mortality that increases in warm weather. Dayton spokesman Sam Fettig says the governor will fish Saturday out of Fisher's Resort near Isle.
