A man with nine prior domestic violence-related convictions in the past 10 years has now been charged with two more following an incident in Coon Rapids.
Brett Richard Brewster, 41, St. Paul, was arraigned in Anoka County District Court May 8 on both felony and misdemeanor domestic abuse no contact order violations.
Bail was set at $20,000 and his next court hearing is June 6.
The afternoon of May 6, Coon Rapids Police responded to a call of a potential no contact order violation on the 10600 block of Kumquat Street N.W.
A woman at the residence told police she had received several text messages throughout the day from her ex-boyfriend, Brewster, regarding him retrieving a vehicle at the address, according to the complaint.
Officers allegedly saw and photographed 10 text messages Brewster had sent to the woman from the same phone number that Brewster had called police and Anoka County dispatch several times that same day requesting a police escort to get the vehicle.
When police spoke to Brewster on the phone, he allegedly admitted sending the texts to the woman.
An active domestic abuse no contact order on file in Anoka County District Court banning Brewster from having any contact with the woman was issued by the court Jan. 29 and is in effect until May 9, 2017.
Brewster entered a guilty plea Jan. 29 to his most recent domestic abuse no contact order violation, a gross misdemeanor, for which he was placed on probation for two years and given credit for 55 days served in jail, while the court also stayed 310 days of a 365-day jail term for two years, according to court records.
Conditions of the probation included remaining law abiding and no contact with the victim.
