A 42-year-old Bemidji man is facing three felonies after an incident over the Labor Day weekend involving a firearm.
According to the criminal complaint, Bemidji Police officers responded to the Hillcrest Manor Trailer Park around 12:50 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 3, on the report of a male with a firearm.
The two victims, identified as T.S. and T.L., advised that Michael-Paul Smith became upset at T.L. over a sandwich. The two victims then went inside their residence, with Smith banging on the door to get inside, ultimately pushing the door in.
Smith also broke a window to the home. T.S. said Smith was his father.
Multiple other witnesses reported Smith had a gun, with a firearm found in the garbage at the trailer park.
Smith is facing charges of felony assault with a dangerous weapon, ineligible possession of a firearm, and felony burglary in the first degree, as well as misdemeanor property damage.
Unconditional bail was set at $500,000.
He will make his next court appearance on Sept. 19.
