Blue Earth Woman Facing Charges After Allegedly Making Threats and Crashing While Under the Influence

A Blue Earth woman is facing a number of charges after she allegedly threatened a man she knows and crashed her van into his car while under the influence.


A man reported he was struck by 29 year old Cassandra Baumann on Saturday evening on Highway 16 in Blue Earth.


The man said he had recently ended a relationship with Baumann and she was harassing him.  Earlier that day, Baumann allegedly called and threatened to kill the man if he didn’t meet with her to talk.


According to the criminal complaint, when the man returned home Baumann was waiting outside his apartment.  When the man drove away, Baumann followed and allegedly rear-ended his car and crashed her van into a ditch.


According to criminal charges, a responding Police Officer found Baumann in a ditch and she appeared to be intoxicated.


A breath test allegedly showed she had a blood alcohol level of 0.17 and additional testing show Baumann also had two drugs and marijuana in her system.


Baumann was charged in Faribault County District Court with felony counts of terroristic threats and assault with a dangerous weapon, gross misdemeanor counts of DWI and drug possession and several misdemeanors including property damage and driving without insurance.
