While being booked in jail, the Brainerd man began acting aggressively, clenching his fists, raising his voice, and lowering his stance, and he requested to "wrestle," with the deputies, the court document stated
A 33-year-old Brainerd man is accused of entering a residence, wanting to fight with the homeowner and later kicking a deputy twice while being booked in Crow Wing County Jail.
Jared Joseph Shaw was charged Sept. 9 in Crow Wing County District Court in Brainerd with two counts of first-degree burglary of an occupied building and assaulting a person; and four gross misdemeanors of fourth-degree assault of a peace officer, fifth-degree assault, and two driving while intoxicated charges.
The charges stem from a burglary the night of Sept. 6 at a residence off Crow Wing County Highway 25 in Oak Lawn Township. According to the probable cause court document, the victim reported Shaw entered his residence, but fled the scene before authorities with the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office and the Brainerd Police Department arrived.
Shaw was located a short time later. He had dried blood on his face and a swollen eye, as he had gotten into a fight at Oak Lawn Tavern prior to arriving at the victim's residence. Deputies could smell alcohol and Shaw had bloodshot, watery eyes, slurred speech, had difficulty walking and poor balance, the court document stated.
The victim stated earlier that night he had heard a vehicle horn honk and then heard someone at the front of the house. He went into the kitchen area and observed Shaw, whom he did not know. Shaw put his chest in the man’s face and acted like he wanted to fight. The victim said he felt fearful that Shaw would hurt him. The man, along with his wife and daughter, were able to push Shaw out of the house. The daughter saw Shaw in the kitchen and witnessed him get into her dad’s face and act like he wanted to fight.
Shaw was arrested and while at the Crow Wing County Jail, Shaw was asked to submit to field sobriety testing and he declined to take the test. Shaw then began acting aggressively, clenching his fists, raising his voice, and lowering his stance, the court document stated and he requested to "wrestle." The deputy removed his Taser from his holster and pointed it at the ground and gave commands. Shaw complied and was escorted into pre-booking. In pre-booking, the deputy attempted to adjust and double lock the handcuffs when Shaw kicked another deputy in the lower leg and called him a vulgar name. The deputy escorted Shaw to the bench where he eventually went to the ground. While on the ground, Shaw kicked the deputy once again.
According to court documents, Shaw has a prior DWI conviction from March of 2011 and a previous qualified domestic violence-related conviction from 2018.
Shaw’s next court hearing is scheduled Dec. 7.
