Wadena woman charged with assault for alleged slap

A 21-year-old Wadena woman was charged Sept. 24 with fifth-degree assault for slapping another woman in the face in Nimrod.

On Sept. 5, a sheriff's deputy was on routine patrol in Nimrod when a woman approached him and reported she had just been assaulted by Deserree Marie Anderson, court records said. The alleged victim had redness on her cheek and ear.

Anderson had accused the victim of being a "snitch" and had struck her with an open hand on the right side of her face, according to court documents.

Anderson had a .098 blood alcohol level when she was tested after the incident, court records said.

Anderson has two previous domestic violence-related convictions in the past three years, both from October 2007.
