Residents of an Otsego townhome on Lachman Avenue said earlier this summer .
In fact, a Wright County Sheriff’s Office has revealed it was the husband who trumped up the harassment incidents, going so far as to injure the couple’s dog and slash the tires on a vehicle.
In June, the community was in arms over the possibility that the apparently racist attacks on the couple had taken place, making several comments to Patch about a KARE 11 story that ran earlier this summer.
“Some people are so ignorant. I know how it feels I was in a mixed relationship and have mixed children,” said one commenter.
The Wright County Sheriff’s Department revealed their investigation, conducted over the summer, showed Demetrius Baker Jr. was allegedly trying to “control” his fiancee, Michelle Cardinal by staging the incidents.
KARE 11 has followed up on the story this week.
Baker is being charged in Wright County with stalking and mistreatment of animals.
