A Menomonee Falls man accused of spitting on an officer was once again given a ride in the back of a squad car.
The 59-year-old man's neighbor called police after he began yelling at her around 1:06 p.m. Feb. 8. Squads reported to the scene shortly after, but the man had left the scene prior to their arrival, according to reports from the Menomonee Falls Police Department.
The man later returned, and was taken into custody for bail jumping. The man had consumed alcohol, which was a violation of his bail. He was also in possesion of narcotics and drug paraphernalia, according to the report.
For the past month, the 59-year-old has been in several run-ins with local law enforcement. He was cited for disorderly conduct earlier in January after his neighbor called in a noise complaint. Police say he started shouting when they arrived and requested he turn down his music. Police arrested him for disorderly conduct, and during the booking process he spit on one of the officers, according to police. He is facing a felony charge for discharging bodily fluid on a public safety employee.
Earlier that same day, officers had been called to Village Park when the man got into an argument with his wife.
Four days after those two incidents, the man was arrested for bail jumping after contacting his neighbor – who lodged the initial noise complaint with police. According to MFPD reports, he attempted to contact the neighbor multiple times both in person and by leaving a note at her door between Jan. 11 and Jan. 12.
When police arrived at the man’s home in response to that call, he was also said to be consuming alcohol. Both contacting the witness and consuming alcohol were violations of his bail. He was arrested and transported to the Waukesha County Jail.
In total, the man is now charged with three counts of felony bail jumping, one felony count of discharging bodily fluid on a public safety officer, one felony count of possession of narcotic drugs, and one count for misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for Feb. 28.
