Assault suspect, victim face charges

EARLY - Two men are facing charges after one of them reported an assault against the other over the weekend.

On Monday, Jeff Largent, 44, of Early, called the Sac County sheriff's office from the Casey's General Store at 3:11 a.m., according to a statement from Sac County Sheriff Ken McClure. Largent said he had been at the home of Joe D. Ladehoff, 29, of Early, when the two got into an argument.

Largent told deputies that Ladehoff pulled out a knife and threatened to cut his throat.

McClure said that's when Largent left Ladehoff's home and called deputies from the Casey's.

Ladehoff was arrested that morning and charged with assault while displaying a dangerous weapon. He was booked into the Sac County Jail on $2,000 cash bond.

About three hours later, McClure said deputies were called back to the Casey's. According to McClure, when deputies arrived they found Largent intoxicated at the store.

Deputies arrested Largent and charged him with public intoxication. He pleaded guilty and received a $195 fine.

Information on Ladehoff's next court appearance was not available Tuesday.
