A Mankato man has been charged after an incident last Friday. Blue Earth County court records say 37-year-old Christopher Hawkinson was charged with first-degree damage to property and tampering with a fire alarm system. Authorities say Hawkinson showed up at the Mankato Public Safety Center trying to get his vehicle out of impound. According to police, Hawkinson got mad and pulled the fire alarm at the public safety center. The court report said the suspect was taken to the hospital where he allegedly urinated on property in the room, tore sheets, ripped apart the mattress, and hit the door numerous times with his hands and a plastic plate.
