Multiple Charges Filed Against Rush City Man with Gun at Eagles Club
A Rush City man faces attempted second degree assault with a deadly weapon, among other charges, for an incident August 5th at the Eagles Club in Rush City.
Kristofer Shon Jacobson, 36, appeared in Chisago County court Monday. According to the Chisago County Attorney’s Office, Jacobsen and his wife got into an argument at the club, which led to him being asked to leave the bar. Jacobsen then went to his nearby residence and retrieved his short-barreled shotgun, returned to the bar and, while in the process of leveling it into a shooting position, was tackled and apprehended by citizen witnesses at the bar, with the shotgun discharging in the process. He was arrested by Chisago County sheriff’s deputies.
He is charged with Attempted 2nd Degree Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, Possession of a Short-Barreled Shotgun, Carrying a Shotgun in a Public Place and Violation of an Order for Protection.
Bail is set at $20,000 unconditionally, or, in the alternative, $10,000 conditioned on having no contact with the Eagles Club, the victim, and not having possession of any dangerous weapons.
His next appearance will be August 24, 2009, at 1:00 p.m.
