Police Response to Apartment Ends with Arrest

Police Response to Apartment Ends with Arrest
Posted on 12/22/2020
Today around 9:50 a.m., a resident called the police and reported a man yelling in the 5700 block of 80th Street. The caller described hearing loud banging and a woman screaming, “back-off!” Pleasant Prairie Officers responded and determined the disturbance was coming from a nearby apartment.    
Officers attempted to enter the apartment by knocking on the door, but a man inside refused to let the officers in and began yelling. The man eventually came out on the balcony, started recording the officers, and continued to shout and threaten them. The man told officers they were not allowed to come into the apartment without a warrant, and he said everything was fine. Eventually, officers spoke with a female that said she and the man were arguing and that the police should leave. 
Officers forced entry to the apartment to ensure the woman’s safety and make sure nobody else was in the apartment in need of help. The 37-year-old man fought with officers and was subsequently arrested. He was transported to St. Catherine’s Hospital and medically cleared before he was taken to the Kenosha County Detention Center on charges of Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, and Threats to Law Enforcement. The man has had a previous arrest for domestic violence charges and has a no-contact order with another woman. Officers did not find anyone else in the apartment, and the woman inside refused to identify herself.
