Stucki has been charged with a felony count of Fourth-Degree Assault of a Police Officer and a gross misdemeanor DWI Controlled Substance charge. 

Court records indicate the October 2022 incident occurred just over six months after a DWI conviction in Dakota County that stemmed from a 2019 encounter with law enforcement. 

Stucki is due to make his first appearance in Olmsted County Court next month.
