Blotter: Drunk Man Gets Feisty With Cops, Charged With Assault

St. Louis Park officers also responded to several break-ins recently.

Editor's Note: The following incidents occurred between Aug. 12 and Aug. 15, and were included in the  most recent weekly report, sent out on Aug. 24. Specific details come from individual incident reports maintained by the department.

Aug. 12 - Police were called to a home in the 7200 block of 14th Street by a woman who said her son, 28-year-old David Allen Bakke, was drunk, belligerent and insisting on driving to work. When officers arrived, Bakke allegedly said, "What the f--- do you guys want?" before pulling his left arm back as if readying to throw a punch. Officers handcuffed Bakke and took him to jail. While in the squad car, he reportedly kicked and head-butted the rear divider window. Bakke, whose criminal history includes convictions for theft, driving after cancellation and assault, was charged with fourth-degree assault and obstruction of the legal process. Both are gross misdemeanors with maximum penalties of one-year in jail, and/or a $3,000 fine.

Aug. 12 - Officers responded to a parking lot in the 2700 block of Louisiana Avenue on a report of a drunk man kicking parked cars. A taxi driver said he had dropped the man, 21-year-old Miguel Guzman-Guzman, off recently. He said Guzman-Guzman was drunk, and when the taxi stopped, Guzman-Guzman allegedly hit the driver and broke his interior rear view mirror. When Guzman-Guzman got outside, he reportedly started kicking parked cars. Guzman-Guzman was cited with disorderly conduct and taken home. The taxi driver did not want to press additional charges.

Aug. 13 - A 26-year-old woman reported to police that someone had apparently broken into her apartment in the 400 block of Ford Road. She said she found pry marks on her door. Because she was in the process of moving, not much was inside the residence, and nothing was reported stolen. No suspects have been identified.

Aug. 13 - A burglary was reported in the 300 block of Shelard Parkway. A woman, 25, said she returned from a 10-day trip to find the front door of her apartment kicked in. A laptop was stolen and several rooms ransacked. No suspects have been identified.

Aug. 14 - A 29-year-old man said a bike was stolen from his garage in the 3100 block of Natchez Avenue—likely while he was doing work in the front yard. No suspects have been identified.

Aug. 15 - Police were called to a home in the 3000 block of Blackstone Avenue on a reported burglary. The 32-year-old female homeowner said she thought her doors had been locked, but there were no signs of forced entry. A neighbor said he saw a purplish-blue van pull up that day, and a lone man got out and went toward the garage. The neighbor said he thought the man was helping the homeowner move. Stolen were a TV, a DVD player, an Xbox and a phone. No further suspect description was available.
