Dakota County Sheriff officers responded to a report of a suicidal male at 6:42 p.m. Oct. 11 at a residence in Castle Rock Township.
When police officers arrived they met the victim, who is being referred to as AML in the complaint. AML, who has a child in common with Egsgaard, told police Egsgaard had made suicidal comments and violated a protection order and a domestic abuse no contact order.
An order for protection was issued on May 3, 2012. AML was the petitioner and Egsgaard was the respondent. That order was in effect until May 2, 2013. On June 12, 2012 the order was amended to allow the defendant to have contact with AML directly, indirectly or via messaging in regard to their child. On April 23, 2013, a probationary DANCO was issued. This allowed Egsgaard to have contact with AML when exchanging the child.
According to AML, when she went to pick her child up from Egsgaard's residence, he repeatedly attempted to touch and hug her, and also asked her to get back together. When she did not return the sentiment, Egsgaard reportedly said: "I can’t live without you, this is the last time you are going to see me and I am going to kill myself." She also said he had been sending her numerous text messages that did not relate to their child.
When Egsgaard was arrested he submitted to a preliminary breath test. The results showed a blood alcohol concentration of .301.
The complaint shows that Egsgaard will be detained until further proceedings.
