1. Hampton Bar a Total Loss After Blaze


Flames engulfed a local Hampton watering hole Thursday. The Dakota County Sheriff's Office reports a fire at the Naughty Pine Tavern, located at 23309 Water Street, began around noon.

No one was hurt, though two dogs died in the blaze.

4. Sheriff: Wrenshall Man Tied Juvenile to Chair, Beat Him

A Wrenshall man is facing seven felony counts in connection with the Sunday kidnapping and assault of a 17-year-old male in Carlton County. Twenty-one-year-old Scott Kendrick Lindgren was charged Thursday with two counts of kidnapping, three counts of assault, a count of threat of violence and a count of false imprisonment. Deputies learned Lindgren had summoned the 17-year-old to his house late Sunday, about midnight. There, Lindgren and others tied the victim to a chair and pistol-whipped him, pointed a .45-caliber pistol at him, racked the pistol to eject a bullet, and dry-fired the gun in his presence.
