Gaylord woman charged with driving towards man to scare him

A Gaylord woman is facing felony charges after she allegedly drove her vehicle towards a man, but instead caused damage to a garage.

Sabrina Lynn Knoke, 42, was charged last week in Sibley County Court with felony counts of second-degree assault and first-degree criminal damage to property.

According to a criminal complaint, a man said he and Knoke were arguing inside her vehicle, when he exited and began walking towards the house.  The man told police he heard the car rev up and saw it strike the garage.

The man said he was standing right by the garage and believed Knoke was intentionally trying to hit him.

Knoke admitted to driving the vehicle and striking the garage.  She told police she had driven towards the man in an attempt to scare him.

Police say the garage sustained over $1,000 in damages.

Knoke was arrested and taken into police custody.
