A 19-year-old Lakeville man was arrested on Wednesday morning after allegedly assaulting a paramedic and making threats toward a doctor’s life.
Chase Jens Donnelly was charged with two counts of making terroristic threats, third-degree criminal property damage and underaged consumption of alcohol.
According to the Winona Police Department, officers responded to a report of a loud party at 12:38 a.m. on Wednesday, August 22. When they arrived, they reportedly found Donnelly semi-conscious on the front lawn. Donnelly reportedly faded in and out of consciousness, and officers attempted to rouse him before later calling in for medical assistance.
On the way to the hospital, Donnelly allegedly became unruly, unbuckled himself from the gurney and shoved a paramedic into the wall of the ambulance. The ambulance then reportedly stopped, and the other paramedic exited the front of the vehicle and went around back. Donnelly then allegedly punched out the window of the ambulance.
Officers arrived to assist and transported Donnelly to the hospital, and he reportedly fought with the officers en route.
At the hospital, Donnelly reportedly threatened to kill a nurse, a doctor and the doctor’s wife while in the emergency room.
Donnelly reportedly had a blood-alcohol content measured at .138 percent.
