Construction worker faces making threats charge

Local News

A construction worker charged with threatening fellow co-workers is scheduled to appear in Faribault County District Court.

Kevin Allen Brockner, 25, of Mora faces one felony count of making terroristic threats and fifth-degree assault, a misdemeanor.

According to a criminal complaint, Faribault County Deputy Brittney Gehrking investigated a report of threats of violence occurring on a crew working on Interstate 90.

A construction supervisor told authorities that one of his workers informed him that Brockner on Sept. 23 threatened to bring a gun to work and shoot everyone on the crew.

Two other workers confirmed that Brockner had become upset with a co-worker and threatened to shoot everyone.

When the supervisor discussed the alleged incident with Brockner he reportedly went up to one of the workers who witnessed the threats made and shoved him in an aggressive manner.

Gehrking attempted to discuss the allegations with Brockner, but he refused.

Brockner was arrested and was ordered to post bail or bond of $20,000 with no conditions or $2,000 with conditions.

He also must surrender any permit to carry a concealed weapon; not use or possess firearms or dangerous weapons; not use alcohol, drugs or controlled substances; have no contact with the victims; may not leave the state without court approval.

Brockner’s omnibus hearing has been scheduled for Nov. 6 before Judge Troy Timmerman.
