Willmar man faces felony in fox urine case

WILLMAR, Minn. — A Willmar man who sprayed teens with fox urine to keep his yard from being toilet-papered now faces a felony charge for allegedly possessing stolen military-issue night vision goggles.

Scott Wagar was charged Tuesday in Kandiyohi County with a felony count of receiving stolen property. He also faces a misdemeanor charge of theft, but two other misdemeanors were dismissed.

The charges stem from a Sept. 16 homecoming incident in which Wagar sprayed teens with a squirt gun filled with water and fox urine. Wagar has said he was trying to defend his property.


Wagar said he is innocent and that he gave the night vision goggles back to his son, who took them while serving with a Marine unit. Wagar said his son followed what he thought were proper procedures, and held on to them until he was told to turn them over. He said the way his son got the goggles was a "gray area."

Wagar’s son is also charged with a felony for receiving stolen property.
