Post-bar brawl lands Kilkenny woman in jail and charged with assault
A woman from Kilkenny allegedly threatened her ex-boyfriend with gun before beating him up, which lead to two domestic assault charges and a disorderly conduct charge.
On August 8, Le Sueur County Dispatch received a message to contact Todd Fox of Waterville, in reference to an incident between him and his ex-girlfriend Paige Sundly, 21. Fox reported being assaulted by Sundly at her home in rural Kilkenny.
Fox told officers that she had pointed a gun at him and said she would shoot if he didn’t leave. Deputies also observed red marks on his face, a small amount of blood in his right ear and bruises on right leg.
Fox told authorities that he had met Sundly and her friend at the Corner Bar in Waterville. Later, the three left the bar and went to Sundly’s home. According to the report, everything was fine until Paige became upset and told Fox to leave. The ex-boyfriend replied that he did not have a ride back to Waterville and would not leave. Fox said the argument became more heated and Sundly said she would get a gun and “make him leave”.
The complaint reported that Fox said Sundly allegedly pointed a gun at Fox and told him to leave or she would shoot him.
The couple’s friend told Sundly to put the gun away and she would give him a ride. Sundly then returned the gun to upstairs of home and Fox was dropped off at home. The complaint stated that Sundly later contacted him to come back to work things out. According to reports, she then picked Fox up, brought him back to her house and continued the fight, allegedly striking him in the face several times and kicking him in the leg before returning him to Waterville.
Le Sueur County Deputies then arrested Sundly and charged her with a felony second degree domestic assault, and fifth degree domestic assault and disorderly conduct. The complaint noted that deputies also observed Sundly attempting to take a number of pills.
In order to control and arrest her, county deputies had to apply handcuffs.
Sundly was released on a $1,000 bail on August 15, according to public defender Rick Lea. An omnibus hearing has been scheduled for September 3, at 10 a.m. If convicted, Sundly could face up to seven years in prison and/or a $14,000 fine.
