Following reports of an overdose on Gabeshi Lane in the Vineland area on Friday, Aug. 9, Jacob William Doust, Jr., 30, of Rush City, was arrested on charges of violating a Domestic Abuse No Contact Order, among other domestic violence related charges.
According to the criminal complaint:
On the morning of Aug. 9, an officer with the Mille Lacs Band Tribal Police arrived at a Gabeshi Lane address in response to a possible overdose. The homeowner allowed the officer in and informed him that Doust was unconscious in a back bedroom. Doust was located unconscious and not breathing on the bedroom floor. The officer administered Narcan, at which point Doust began breathing and regained consciousness.
Doust was transported to the hospital via ambulance, and the officer was informed by the homeowner that a No Contact Order prohibited Doust from having contact with her. The officer contacted the hospital to arrange for Doust’s arrest and was informed that the man had fled the ambulance in Onamia.
At 11:22 p.m. that same day, another officer drove by the Gabeshi Lane address and observed three individuals sitting in a vehicle. The individuals fled inside the home at the officer’s approach, and he recognized all three of the men from prior contact. Doust was among the group.
The officer was allowed to search the home for Doust by the owner. He was located under a bed and only came out after numerous commands, according to the report.

Doust additionally has five domestic assault convictions, which included two fifth degree assault convictions, one second degree assault conviction, one terroristic threats conviction and a conviction for violating a protection order.
