STATEMENT OF PROBABLE CAUSE
The Complainant states that the following facts establish probable cause:
Your Complainant is a law enforcement officer with the Apple Valley Police Department.
Acting in that capacity, I have reviewed the police reports and believe the following to be true.
On Wednesday, June 29, 2011, at approximately 12:35 a.m., officers were dispatched to
an area in the City of Apple Valley, Dakota County, Minnesota, where a caller reported hearing
the sounds of yelling, a female screaming, and glass being broken coming from a neighbor’s
home. Officers located a male at the residence, fully identified as Brett Charles Rogers, date of
birth 2/17/1981, who agreed to speak with officers on the driveway of the residence. Rogers
stated that he had argued with his wife, T.R., and that when she hit him during the argument, he
hit her back. Rogers had no visible injuries on his body. Rogers’ speech was slurred and his
breath smelled of alcohol, and he advised he had been consuming alcohol that evening.
Rogers permitted the officers to look for T.R. inside the residence but she could not be
located. A neighbor reported that he had looked out his residence window and saw Rogers
standing over T.R. and punching her multiple times in the head and face as she lay on the
ground. Another neighbor stated he saw T.R. with blood streaming from her face and mouth and
what looked like a missing tooth. Rogers’ nine-year old daughter reported that she had heard her
parents yelling, she went to the kitchen, and saw her father pushing her mother multiple times up
against a kitchen cabinet. The girl reported she shouted for her father to stop. Rogers’ ten-year
old daughter reported that she heard the shouting, and had seen her father strike her mother in the
past. She also reported that her father had struck the children within the last two years.
T.R. was located by other officers walking by a nearby school. T.R. had obvious signs of
injury on her face, including a golf ball size bump above her left eyebrow, a bump on her right
4
eyebrow, and one in the middle of her forehead, injuries to her ears and jaw, along with blood on
her face and a missing tooth. She also had injuries to her neck and back. T.R. repeatedly denied
that she had been assaulted and said she had simply fallen on the ground. Paramedics were
called due to what appeared to be serious injuries to T.R.’s head. T.R. was transported to the
hospital.
In the ambulance, T.R. spoke with an officer and paramedics about her injuries. T.R.
advised that she and her husband had been arguing that night. He became angry and grabbed her
with both hands around her neck and squeezed. She was able to get away and went into the back
yard. Her husband followed her and got her on the ground and began hitting her about her head
and face, causing her to “black out.” By the time T.R. arrived at the hospital, her ear had swollen
and had a “cauliflower ear” look. T.R. stated she did not want her husband charged with assault
because she did not want to cause him trouble with his job.
T.R. was released from the hospital at approximately 4:30 p.m. Rogers and T.R.’s
children, who had been staying with a neighbor while their mother was in the hospital, told the
neighbor that they were afraid to go home, and that their father had “choked” them in the past.
An officer attempted to meet with T.R. to take follow-up photos of what he expected would have
developed into significant bruising. T.R. refused to meet with the officer and told him that the
assault was her fault.
