Retired firefighter charged in assault of former Gophers player arrested again
54-year-old Eric Jagers yelled racial slurs and shot at former Gopher running back Tellis Redmon April 14 in Minneapolis.
Jagers was then charged with 2nd degree assault and threats of violence.
A mental health evaluation was not ordered as one of the conditions of his release.
Jagers was arrested again in Breckenridge, Minnesota after cutting off his ankle bracelet at the gas station before driving off in a pickup truck.
This led to a police chase which ended with a crash. Police said after the crash, Jagers drew a hunting bow on officers.
“Unfortunately the people who are trained in mental health aren’t the people who are on the bench,” said University of St Thomas law professor Mark Osler.
Osler says according to state law, mental health should come into play when setting bail, but it would be unusual for a judge to go into it with much depth during a typical bail hearing.
