According to a recent Dakota County Criminal Complaint, a love triangle centered around one man has led to terroristic threat charges against one of the women after she tried to run her competition down with their lover’s car.
From the complaint:
On August 21, 2011 at 2:47 a.m., an officer was dispatched to a residence located in South St Paul, Dakota County, Minnesota on a report of harassment. Upon arrival the officer spoke with A.Y.D. and A.P.D.. A.Y.D. advised the officer that Mistina Rose Spry, date of birth 9/5/1985 (defendant herein), had confronted he about her relationship with A.T., a man whom they were both dating. A.Y.D. stated that the defendant showed up at her residence in A.T.’s red Ford Explorer yelling and honking the horn. The defendant yelled “Come out to the street so I can run you over” at which time A.Y.D. stood on the stairs of her home and engaged in a verbal argument with the defendant who had exited the vehicle. As the argument went on, the defendant became so enraged that she got back into the vehicle and drove through the front yard towards where A.Y.D. was standing. A.Y.D., stated she was scared for her life and ran through the neighbors front lawn to avoid the defendant, who followed her in the vehicle. The officer took a statement from A.P.D. who stated that she had been outside during the argument, heard the defendant tell A.Y.D. to come out to the street so she could run her over and saw the defendant drive through the lawns as A.Y.D. ran away. A.P.D. stated she was scared during the incident. The officer observed tire tracks that started in AYD’s front yard and continued into the neighbor’s front yard. The tracks were approximately 35 feet from the curb and 15 feet from the homes and in multiple areas the grass was completely gone and surface dirt was showing.
With the defendant actually physically threatening the other woman with a car and chasing her with it do you believer terroristic threat charges are sufficient? If you were a defendant in a felony case would you leave your Facebook profile up and publicly accessible with photos of the unnamed male and an innocent child still available to the world? Whatever you have to say about this one go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear your thoughts.
