Meyer of Bowlus charged with domestic assault

Nicholas Robert Meyer, 30, Bowlus, has been charged with one felony count of domestic assault by Morrison County Attorney Brian Middendorf and his staff.

On June 10, the Morrison County Dispatch received a report of a domestic dispute in progress in Bowlus. A sheriff’s deputy met with the victim who stated she had been out drinking with Meyer, her boyfriend, when he got upset because she was talking to another man.

The victim stated Meyer allegedly called her names, grabbed her and threw her to the ground and began slapping her face. He then went back to their apartment.

The victim followed 10 minutes later, hoping Meyer had calmed down. But, when she entered the apartment, he allegedly grabbed her again and threw her on the bed. She told officers Meyer held her down and punched her multiple times in the arm.

She said she was able to throw Meyer off her and run outdoors. Officers noted scratches and bruises on her arm.

Meyer was located in the apartment and placed under arrest.

An examination of Meyer’s criminal history showed he has prior convictions for fifth degree assault from Anoka County in 2008, and in 2005.

If convicted, Meyer faces a maximum penalty of five years imprisonment and/or a $10,000 fine.
