Juvenile complaint

Onamia, Isle and Mille Lacs Tribal officers, along with Mille Lacs County Sheriff deputies and Minnesota State Patrol officers, responded to a report of juveniles barricading doors and causing a disturbance at an address associated with the Mille Lacs Academy. Seven juveniles were arrested for charges of gross misdemeanor rioting in the third degree, disorderly conduct and assault.

Five other assaults by juveniles were reported at the same address of those charged with rioting throughout the month, including one that sent a staff member to the hospital.


Onamia officers cited five drivers with a DWI, including one driver who had a final blood alcohol level of .14 and was driving 85 mph in a 65 mph zone and another whose final blood alcohol level was .16.

Another was arrested for driving under the influence of methamphetamine.

One driver, whose preliminary breath test was .155, was found to have 16 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The driver refused a final blood alcohol test and was charged with test refusal, DWI and marijuana possession over 1.4 grams in a motor vehicle.


A woman reported a break-in and their 55-inch flat screen TV along with other property missing. Access to the property was gained through the A/C window.

Welfare check

While checking on a person’s welfare, officers learned the person’s vehicle was stolen. The driver was arrested for felony receiving stolen property, DUI-drugs and possession of hypodermic needles. The driver also had a felony warrant out of Hennepin County.

Officers were also dispatched to check on concerns for two children not having proper living conditions, and a family services child protection intake was completed.

A nine-year-old was reported as not being enrolled in school. The juvenile claims she is being homeschooled, but the complaint states that is not the case. Family services were notified.


A woman was arrested for domestic assault and disorderly conduct whose preliminary breath test was .178.
