Man back in jail following assault charge

Abram John Bruguier

WORTHINGTON — Abram John Bruguier, 33, of Luverne has been returned to the Nobles County Jail following a charge of third-degree domestic assault.

Bruguier's arrest occurred as a result of a domestic incident in which officers found a woman with a broken nose who said Bruguier assaulted her. He had been drinking prior to the alleged assault and was drunk when officers arrived on the scene.

Although Bruguier was released from jail shortly after his arrest, he failed to appear for his omnibus hearing and failed to comply with his pre-trial conditions.

If convicted, Bruguier faces a maximum of five years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
