• A Stillwater woman, 57, was cited June 6 on eastbound 75th Street N. and Lake Elmo Avenue for tabs that expired in December 2018 and failure to change the address on her license. The motorist said she didn't know her tabs had expired because she didn't receive any notification in the mail. The subject admitted to moving more than one year ago and didn't change the address on her license. As deputies issued the citation, the subject said they were “bad” and she would make a complainant against them.  Before deputies could open their mouths to explain, the subject shifted into drive and sped away as deputies stood next to the driver's window. Her behavior was captured on two different video cameras.

Although deputies advised the complainant there was no ordinance pertaining to her complaint and that the light wasn't shining on her home, she wanted the neighbor cited. When deputies suggested that she talk to her neighbor in the daytime, the complainant said it was deputies' job to talk to the neighbor. When deputies said they wouldn't be doing that, they were hung up on.
