Deputies were called to the residence at 804 County Road 18 around 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 15. A caller indicated there was a juvenile being held hostage and "in really bad shape, tied to a chair and getting his head stomped on." Deputies responded and found Lindgren and his girlfriend in a car, attempting to leave the scene. The victim was found in the back seat, "in horrible shape, injured and needing medical attention."
The female victim told police that the suspect had held her at gunpoint for approximately 30 minutes before her brother arrived and attempted to disarm him. She and the other woman ran from the house at that time.
The victim said she had just returned home from work and began to prepare dinner when Rodriguez appeared in her home. The suspect brandished a handgun and ordered the woman to give her all the money in her billfold - $326 - and drive him in her car to Pine County. The victim said she was threatened with her life if she did not comply.
Legal action against Pinnacle was initiated by the families more than three years ago. Sixth Judicial District Judge Sally Tarnowski in August 2014 denied the clinic's motion to dismiss the case, finding that it has a duty to protect the public from actions taken by its patients. Sieff said that ruling was the first of its kind for a methadone clinic in Minnesota.
