It’s stories like these that make me proud to be a Minnesotan. A 20-year-old Minnesota woman may face up to five felony counts of harassment after prank-calling her grandmother 45 times in one day, claiming she was “bored” and “wanted to have some fun,” allegedly saying “I’m gonna kill you,” “You’re going to die,” and “I’m watching you.” Rumors are that after she said “I’m watching you,” she made a *clap clap* and said “I see your every move.”
