Police in Minnesota are seeking to extradite Kyle M. Overson, who was charged earlier this month for beating a 60-year-old Waupaca man severely enough to send him to the hospital.
Overson is currently being held at Waupaca County Jail on a $5,000 cash bond. He faces charges of substantial battery, disorderly conduct and misdemeanor bail jumping.
Overson is wanted in Blue Earth County, Minn., on felony charges of assaulting a police officer and making terroristic threats and misdemeanor charges of obstructing an officer and contempt of court.
In February 2012, Mankato police were called out to Overson’s home in response to a domestic violence complaint. A woman called 911 to report that he had threatened her with a knife.
Police arrested Overson without incident. However, while at the hospital for a mental health evaluation, Overson became “agitated, upset and belligerent,” according to the Mankato Free Press. He reportedly struggled with the officers and injured two of them before being tased three times, forced to the floor and handcuffed.
Overson spent the next five months in jail until he posted a cash bail.
“He was free for about a week before he was arrested and jailed again,” the Free Press reported in July 2012.
Overson’s second arrest in Mankato happened after police received a call complaining that a drunk had just left a bar with a stolen bottle of liquor.
When the officer confronted Overson about the liquor bottle, Overson allegedly said he found it outside the bar. Police say Overson later struggled with several officers when they attempted to arrest him for violating the conditions of his bail.
A warrant for Overson’s arrest was issued in January 2013 in Minnesota after he failed to make a court appearance.
In Waupaca County, Overson was charged with battery in two separate incidents in August and September.
