A Cottage Grove man was arrested after he allegedly threatened someone with a wine cooler.

Police were called about 10:30 p.m. June 15 to the 8400 block of Ideal Avenue on a report that a male suspect was out of control.


Officers found two suspects nearby at Hillside and Hilo trails.

A 21-year-old Cottage Grove man was arrested on suspicion of fifth-degree assault. He had allegedly brandished a wine cooler bottle and threatened his stepfather.

The other man — a 19-year-old from Hastings — was arrested after police say he provided them with a false name. He used someone else’s name, which makes the alleged offense a gross misdemeanor.

Both men were booked at the Washington County jail.
