Night of sex, selfies ends with alleged threats

A rendezvous at Red Roof Inn in Woodbury led to a St. Paul man sexting selfies during intercourse, allegedly threatening his ex-girlfriend with a beer bottle, and getting charged with felony domestic assault.

Sean McNerthney, 30, is scheduled to appear in Washington County District Court in mid-November.

According to the complaint:

On Nov. 7, McNerthney invited an ex-girlfriend to meet, talk about fixing her car, and work on their relationship. They had dinner (and she had one drink) at Cowboy Jack's, and they walked back to the Red Roof Inn.

While having sex, McNerthney took pictures of his ex-girlfriend unbeknownst to her. Later she learned that he had sent the naked photos to other people, including her family and friends.

After sex, McNerthney asked her how she was getting to work. He didn't like her answer, called her names, pushed her and held a beer bottle over her in a threatening manner.

At least two domestic violence-related convictions are on McNerthney's record in the past 10 years—two violations of orders for protection in 2006, in regard to incidents that occurred in 2005 in Ramsey County.
