ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Prosecutors have dropped charges against a St. Paul man accused of pointing an assault rifle at his teenage daughter because of her grades in school.
The 51-year-old man had been charged with two counts of making terroristic threats, a felony. He was accused of pointing the rifle at his 15-year-old daughter and his wife during an argument at their home in January 2013.
A spokesman for the Ramsey County Attorney's office tells the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/1m7gpd8 ) the alleged victims refused to cooperate, making it nearly impossible to prove the case.
The complaint says the man had recently bought the AK-47 because he feared the gun would be banned. He allegedly had threatened his daughter with it because she was getting two B's in school rather than straight A's.
