Minn. third-party candidate had domestic incident

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Third-party gubernatorial candidate Rob Hahn is confirming that his former wife has an order of protection against him.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Third-party gubernatorial candidate Rob Hahn is confirming that his former wife has an order of protection against him.

Hahn confirms a story published in Thursday's Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The newspaper cited a report filed by Hahn's now ex-wife as she sought the order after a March 2009 incident.

The paper says her account says Hahn pushed her against a wall, screamed in her face, broke two phones and, when she ran from the home, yelled, "You're (expletive) lucky I didn't kill you."

Hahn says the account is "probably an accurate description."

He says he voluntarily enrolled in a domestic abuse program and has been open about the incident, including talking about it at a Capitol rally on family law issues in March.
