A 27-year-old Courtland man faces eight charges in Brown County District Court after a May 22 incident in Sleepy Eye. Charges including burglary, assault on a peace officer, obstructing legal process, fleeing a peace officer, drug possession and sale and possession of drug paraphernalia were filed Tuesday against Matthew W. Luepke, 48252 501st Ln., Courtland. Luepke, in Brown County Jail custody, appeared at a Zoom bail hearing Wednesday. According to court documents, Sleepy Eye Police were called by a witness at 8:53 p.m. May 22. The witness said her ex-boyfriend, the father of her two children, was believed to be intoxicated and refused to leave. Police went to the Sunrise Manor and saw Luepke sitting on a chair outside an apartment. Luepke began to get up from the chair. Police told him to stop. Police searched Luepke and found a glass pipe with marijuana residue in a small pouch, and a plastic baggie of marijuana. Luepke continued to resist, kicking a vehicle door and officers. Police warned him to stop resisting or he would be tased. Luepke refused and was tased before he allowed the vehicle door to be closed.
