A 32-year-old Milwaukee man is facing charges after he got into a fight with his family at , then threw his shoes at a desk after the bartender there refused to serve him anymore alcohol.
Jesse L. Szombathelyi was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Friday with one count of resisting an officer. If convicted, he faces up to nine months in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Feb. 14, Szombathelyi was at Village Bowl with his family after he had spent the earlier part of the day drinking vodka and beer at his mother’s house. He continued to drink at Village Bowl and eventually got into an argument with members of his family.
While arguing, Szombathelyi began to yell, throw a glass of beer and slam a bowling ball down. After a bartender refused to serve him more alcohol, Szombathelyi took off his bowling shoes and tossed them at a desk near the bar, prompting staff to call police.
Officers found Szombathelyi outside the alley and he began to run from police. He briefly tried to hide behind a small tree, but then kept running.
One officer pulled out his stun gun and pointed it at Szombathelyi while running and commanded him to stop, but he still refused. Eventually police were able to apprehend him, but Szombathelyi resisted while on the ground.
Officers needed to strike Szombathelyi twice in the head and once in the hip in order to get him to comply. He had a blood alcohol level of 0.21 at the time of the incident.
He will make his initial appearance in court June 18.
