  • A man didn't have far to go to jail after allegedly assaulting another man while they worked on the roof of a central Minnesota jail.
    The St. Cloud Times (http://on.sctimes.com/Xy34F4 ) reports the men got into an argument Monday while on the roof of the Stearns County Jail. One man is accused of hitting the other with a rake used for spreading rocks.
    Sheriff's officials arrested a 43-year-old St. Cloud man and booked him for investigation of second-degree assault.
    The 23-year-old victim suffered a cut to his forehead and told investigators he had a tooth knocked out. Paramedics treated him.
    Sheriff John Sanner says the men were temporary employees of the company hired to re-roof the jail.
