Ramsey County Deputy arrested for assault

A Ramsey County Deputy has been arrested on charges of felony assault.

Deputy Dawn Fisher-Nagel, of Roseville, was arrested and booked Monday morning and is in Ramsey County Jail after an apparent ‘domestic situation.’ The case has been handed over to the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office to avoid a conflict of interest.

Ramsey County officials say Fisher-Nagel has never been in trouble before, but lately she’s had some family problems. Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher appeared on 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS MIDDAY to talk about the case.

"Deputy Nagel has an exemplary record, but had a domestic situation with her spouse," Fletcher told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. "There was alcohol involved and at some point in the conflict a handgun was discharged. Her husband claims it was directed toward him, so consequently she was arrested for assault.
