A call made from the office of Dresser’s Valley Motel regarding a disorderly subject has landed Michael, Huettl, 66, with repeat charges of  possession of Methamphetamine, possession of THC, possession of drug paraphernalia, disorderly conduct, criminal trespassing to dwelling, criminal damage to property, and bail jumping.

According to Probable Cause, January 2, 2020, law enforcement responded to the motel where they found Huettl in the upstairs portion of the building’s main office, which is clearly labeled as an “Employees Only Area.” The caller explained to law enforcement that she is the manager of the establishment and resides above the office. She said Huettl had been warned by another deputy earlier in the day to stay out of the office area after a previous altercation had occurred, but later he returned and was being disruptive, yelling at people and refusing to leave and claiming he could go where he wanted and take what he wanted.

According to the report, the employee said at one point Huettl forced his way past the “Employees Only” door and entered the restricted area. She said at that point she tried pushing Huettl back out the door while continually telling him he could not be there. She then said he pushed her back and went up the stairs to the private residence where she lives without consent. She stated Huettl grabbed a lamp, threw it and it shattered on the floor. 

Law enforcement met with Huettl who also resides at the motel. He allegedly acknowledged entering the residence area and said he could go anywhere he wanted to. Huettl had several items in his possession that belonged to the employee and they were returned to her.

Heuttl was placed under arrest and while searching him, officers located a rubber pipe with a metal bowl, which contained residue testing positive for THC. Huettl allegedly said he used it to smoke “legal marijuana” which he said he had more of in his room. He gave consent for law enforcement to search his room, as did his wife. He said anything related to marijuana in the room belonged to him. 

Recovered from the room were three pipes, one of which had a white colored residue testing positive for Meth. Also located was a wood bowl containing dark residue testing positive for hash.

Polk County Sheriff’s Dispatch advised Huettl had an open felony criminal case in Burnett County that had a condition of bond, which stated in part “not to possess illegal substances, drugs or paraphernalia without prescription.” 

The report said while Huettl was being transported to the Polk County Jail, he became disorderly in the backseat of the squad car. He was able to get his seatbelt off, kicked at the door and barrier multiple times and banged his head against the barrier multiple times before arriving at the jail.

If convicted on all counts he faces 15 years in prison and fines of $30,000.
