Baxter Woman Accused of Breaking Officer’s Ankle
BAXTER (AP) – A woman in Crow Wing County is accused of breaking a police officer’s ankle as she struggled against her arrest.
Forty-four-year-old Jennifer Burnos, of Baxter, is charged with obstruction.
Burnos is being held in the Crow Wing County Jail on $75,000 bond without conditions. Baxter police say five officers responded to a call at a home Jan. 8 and were talking to Burnos when they discovered she had a warrant for her arrest in Hubbard County.
Police say Burnos was taken to the ground kicking and screaming and broke the ankle of Officer Joe Sundgaard.
Burnos is scheduled for a hearing Feb. 13.
