Man strikes woman
on way to anger management class

(You couldn't make this stuff up if you tried!)

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Authorities in Minnesota accuse a man en route to anger management class of striking a woman after becoming, well, angry.

Justin John Boudin pleaded guilty Friday to fifth-degree assault in Ramsey County District Court.

The county attorney's office says the 27-year-old can expect to face a sentence for time served in jail, at least 120 days, and probation when he is sentenced May 5.

According to a criminal complaint, Boudin was waiting at a bus stop on Aug. 29 when he accosted a 59-year-old woman and others.

The complaint alleges that when she took out a cell phone to call police, she was hit in the face, and a 63-year-old man who tried to stop the assailant was then hit with a blue folder - which fell on the ground.

Police tracked the man down through the folder, which included Boudin's name and anger management homework.
