Andover man admits to pointing gun

An Andover man pleaded guilty Oct. 14 in Anoka County District Court to a felony second-degree assault charge for pointing a gun at another man.

Luke William Dobrava, 31, will be sentenced Jan. 14, 2014.

According to the criminal complaint, Dobrava after 2 a.m. on Sept. 30, 2012 went to the Ham Lake home of his girlfriend’s brother and asked him to apologize to her for something that happened between them years ago.

When the brother said he would not apologize, Dobrava pointed a gun at him, according to the account the brother told police that was detailed in the complaint.

The man told police that he and Dobrava wrestled over the gun for some time before Dobrava put the gun in his back waist and left the home after he went into the bathroom to call 911.

Dobrava was arrested without incident at his Andover home. He allegedly denied that he went to the home that evening and said to the arresting officer that there was not enough evidence to arrest him.

An Anoka County District Court judge signed a search warrant and police found a handgun under the futon bed in the living room.
