Man once jailed in cop killing accused of stalking
BUFFALO, Minn. (AP) — A man who was arrested but not charged in the killing of a Cold Spring police officer has been charged with stalking his ex-girlfriend.
The St. Cloud Times reports (http://on.sctimes.com/11jMycu ) 34-year-old Ryan Michael Larson is accused of a pattern of stalking that included calling her employer, a health care facility in Buffalo, and trying to get her fired. A warrant was issued for his arrest Thursday.
The criminal complaint filed in Wright County charges Larson with felony stalking and violating a restraining order.
Larson was arrested the night Officer Tom Decker was shot behind a Cold Spring bar Nov. 29. He spent four days in jail before being released. He has said he's innocent of that crime.
His attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the charges.
