Beat the hell out of a woman, get sentenced for disorderly conduct

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office investigator was sentenced Monday, Sept. 18 for a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.

Blaize David Zimmerman, 42, Thief River Falls, remains on paid administrative leave until a final determination can be made about his job.

Zimmerman was granted a stay of adjudication for the charge, which was continued. As a condition of that sentence, Zimmerman was ordered to serve probation to the court for one year.

He was ordered to complete a chemical assessment and pay a $200 fee. A Domestic Abuse – No Contact Order has since been cancelled. Zimmerman had initially been cited for domestic assault. He subsequently pled guilty to the amended charge of disorderly conduct.

According to the petition, Zimmerman admitted engaging in boisterous, noisy contact that he knew or had reason to know would alarm, anger and disturb his wife. The incident was reported Friday, July 14 at his home in 14700 block of 158th St. N.E. The Polk County Attorney’s Office handled the case on behalf of the Pennington County Attorney’s Office.
