May 30, 2017 – Jackson, WI – An unpredictable holiday weekend for Jackson Police.
Naked couple found trespassing
Shortly after 10 a.m. Friday, police, assisted by a State Trooper, were called to the Jackson Bay apartment, after a naked couple was found trespassing inside an apartment. Ultimately, a Cedarburg man and a West Bend woman were cited for disorderly conduct and escorted out of the building.
At about 3:30 PM that afternoon, a Hunters Road resident was working outside when he observed a man walk into his house through the garage. When challenged, the man claimed it was his house and started chasing the resident. Eventually, the resident was able to lock the man out. When officers arrived, they found the heavily intoxicated man in the garage. He refused to comply with officers’ commands, at one point telling them to shoot him. Officers from Slinger and the Sheriff’s Office assisted. Eventually, the man was pepper sprayed and surrendered. The Slinger man, 32, had been “house sitting” for some friends, went to a local tavern, walked back to the wrong street, and thought the homeowner was a trespasser. The man was booked at the County Jail for disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.
On Saturday at 3:45 PM, an officer recognized a vehicle that was known to be used by persons wanted for warrants and in connection with criminal investigations. When he attempted to stop the Chevrolet Saturn on Highway 45, the driver, a 26-year old West Bend man, kept driving for a half-mile as objects were tossed out of the car, which finally stopped north of Highway NN. After officers from West Bend and the Sheriff’s Office arrived, the occupants were ordered out of the vehicle one-at-a-time. The Hartford K9 detected contraband, and a physical search turned up paraphernalia used for cocaine and heroin, and a credit card that had been stolen from a Hartford woman. The driver was arrested on a felony warrant from the Department of Corrections, and possession of a switchblade and drug paraphernalia. A 27-year-old West Bend woman was arrested on a felony DOC warrant and possession of drug paraphernalia. Another West Bend woman, 31, was arrested by West Bend police in connection with a theft investigation. A Jackson man, 29, was arrested by sheriff’s deputies for multiple counts of forgery and theft.
Later Saturday afternoon, police were called to a barking dog complaint and discovered that the owner was badly intoxicated. With a PBT test of .41%, the woman had to be taken to a detox unit in Milwaukee.
And shortly before 10:00 PM Sunday night, a 911 caller claimed that an intoxicated woman was threatening family members with a knife. After police arrived, it became apparent that the report was false. After further investigation, the man was positively identified as the woman’s estranged husband, who had earlier sent her threatening text messages. He was apprehended by West Bend police on Monday morning, and charges of disorderly conduct, obstructing an officer, and unlawful use of computerized communications were sent to the District Attorney for consideration.
