A couple had been feeding the deer, which they collared. The DNR, thinking the deer were escapees from a private game farm and could introduce disease among wild deer, ordered a hit on them. "To have somebody put a collar on a wild deer, two of them in fact, I've never heard of it," said Capt. Greg Salo of the DNR's enforcement division.
"I was the victim in this case, I was on a table, vulnerable," said the patient, Larry V. King, a deputy with the Carver County (Minn.) Sheriff's Office, who said he was angry that former Twin Cities nurse Sarah May Casareto received only probation. "I can't describe the experience I went through in a courtroom because I can't use the language to describe the agony I went through."
In one of the largest theft cases in the history of Minnesota's Washington County, a Twin Cities metro county, a former Forest Lake woman has been sentenced to more than five years in prison after pocketing about $1.2 million from dozens of property transactions.
Responding publicly to charges that she stole pain medication from a patient who then screamed in agony during surgery, nurse Sarah Casareto said through her attorney Friday that she is being used as a "scapegoat" by the Minneapolis hospital where the procedure took place. Before surgery, she allegedly told him to "man up here and take some of the pain."
That comment was taken out of context, her attorney says.
Forest Lake, Minn., police said they used a stun gun on a naked man who ran in a freeway median claiming to be God and the devil. Police responded to a call Thursday afternoon reporting a man running on Interstate 35.
