Minnesota Police Officer Charged For Harassing Calls That Allegedly Led To Armed Confrontation


A Minnesota police officer has been charged with two counts of harassment and one count of misconduct for allegedly making more than 30 calls after midnight one evening to a local Oakdale, Minnesota man with an active warrant that he had been ordered to surveil, Samantha Fischer reports for KARE11. The man reported the harassing calls to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office multiple times that night. Then, around 3 pm, the man came out to confront officers with a shotgun, in a standoff that ultimately ended without injury. 

Another officer alleged that Charles Nelson made the harassing calls to the man and that they escalated the situation. The City of Oakdale released a statement from city officials and the OPD emphasizing in part “that the actions of one police officer are not representative of all the honorable men and women serving the Oakdale community.”
