IF this is indeed the complete story......it's pretty sad. AGAIN, that is if this all there is to the story. If he smacked someone over simply being asked to wear a mask. Let's give the benefit of the doubt rather than just assuming things. That said, if it is as simple as that, I'll just say that "they say true character comes out during times of adversity". I'll just leave it at that.
The co-owner of Alibi Drinkery, who made headlines for refusing to shutter his bar in compliance with state COVID-19 restrictions, was charged Thursday with misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct after allegedly smacking a Jimmy John's manager in Rosemount after his companion was asked to wear a mask.
Ricardo M. Baldazo, 39, of Prior Lake was charged with two counts of fifth-degree assault and one count of disorderly conduct, according to Rosemount Police Chief Mikael Dahlstrom. He was not arrested but will instead receive a summons.
