Crime blotter: Scot on the rocks
class=img_thumbleft> On October 6, just after 9:30 p.m., police officers at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport were called to deal with a highly intoxicated passenger on an Amsterdam-bound flight. According to a criminal complaint subsequently filed in Hennepin County District Court, 32-year-old Lee Kidney (pictured at left) urinated on himself and vomited. A breathalyzer test showed that his blood-alcohol content was .28. When officers attempted to get medical assistance for Kidney, the Alberdean, Scotland resident became belligerent. He allegedly kicked, swore and spat at officers, even headbutting one cop. Kidney was eventually subdued with the help of a taser gun. He's been charged with fourth degree assault and is currently in custody at the Hennepin County Jail with bail set at $15,000.
