On This Date in Minnesota History: October 18

Oct. 18, 2002 - “Hall of Famer Kirby Puckett was charged [on this date] with sexual assault and false imprisonment for allegedly groping a woman after pulling her into the bathroom of a Minnesota restaurant. According to [his] District Court criminal complaint, the retired baseball star grabbed the woman’s arm and ‘dragged her into the men’s restroom and then touched her breast.” This [wasn’t] the first time the [then] 42-year-old Puckett has been accused of mistreating a woman.

“In December 2001, Puckett’s wife Tonya (who has since filed for divorce) told Minnesota cops that her husband ‘screamed at her, over the telephone that he was going to kill her.’”
