Woman Charged with Head-Butting St. Louis Park Co-worker

The woman allegedly head-butted him in the mouth after a verbal argument.

A Minneapolis woman is accused of head-butting coworker in the mouth during her shift at the Electro Static Corp. in St. Louis Park.

Margarito Espana, 42, has been charged with two misdemeanor assault charges and faces up to 90 days behind bars for the incident.

The owners of the industrial powdercoating business in the Beltline Boulevard industrial park called St. Louis Park police around 3:30 p.m. on July 11.

The business owners told police that Espana had had a telephone argument earlier in the day with a male coworker.

When the man tried to leave work, Espana approached him, wanting to fight, according to the criminal complaint.

He went inside to get his bosses, who told Espana to leave.

Instead, she approached her coworker, head-butting him in the mouth, busting up his lip, according to the criminal complaint.

Her bosses then intervened and Espana left the building.

When police arrived, the man’s lip had fattened and was trickling blood.

A summons has been issued for for Espana to appear in Hennepin County court.

Well, it would appear that Ms. Espana has forgotten the social graces I am sure she learned at Ms. Higgenbotham's Finishing School for Young Girls on the Upper East Side. And she apparently misplaced her copy of Amy Vanderbilt's Book of Etiquette... otherwise, this fine, outstanding lady would realize that having a co-worker over for afternoon tea and cucumber sandwiches is refined matter to settle such disputes. BTW, I hope she did not get her white gloves or pillbox hat soiled in this altercation.

Crazy is as crazy does. This is Minnesota. I am not at all surprised.
