A southern Minnesota woman is facing felony charges after she allegedly kicked out an Uber driver’s windshield, damaged his cellphone and commanded her dog to “kill” a responding police officer.
Mary Kathryn Boettcher, 36, of Mankato, is charged with fourth-degree assault against a peace officer, obstructing the legal process and first-degree damage to property, according to documents filed in Blue Earth County.
The charges stem from the night of Dec. 30, when officials say an Uber driver called 911 after a woman kicked out his windshield and broke his cellphone before heading inside a home. A witness in the Uber told police the woman was very intoxicated and “freaked out” when the Uber got close to her house.
According to a criminal complaint, officers responded to the home and identified the woman as Boettcher.
