A member of the Vadnais Heights City Council was arrested and jailed over the weekend on accusations of domestic assault.

Terry Nyblom, 53, was booked Sunday into the Ramsey County Adult Detention Center on charges of assault and interfering with a 911 call, jail booking records show.

He was picked up at his home on Hiawatha Avenue early Sunday, reportedly after trying to stop a female acquaintance from summoning help via 911. Ramsey County sheriff’s deputies arrested him about 2 a.m.

Nyblom was elected to the Vadnais Heights council in 2012, coming in first in a field of five candidates with 35 percent of the votes, and re-elected in 2014 when he again came in first with 32 percent.

His official biography on the city website describes him as a lifelong resident of the city and father of two who attended White Bear Lake schools and has been employed as an auto technician for more than three decades.

According to the biography, “Terry feels strongly that an open transparent government is a necessity to build trust from the people it serves.” His goals as a council member are to control “outside influences upon our city” and identify Vadnais Heights’ needs in the long and short terms.
