A 40-year-old Kenosha man faces a felony charge of battery to a law enforcement officer after he allegedly punched a Kenosha Police officer.
Richard A. Bartholomew, of the 2500 block of 71st Street, made his initial appearance on Dec. 6 in Kenosha County Circuit Court. He is due back for a preliminary hearing Dec. 22, at 9 a.m.
Bartholomew also is charged with misdemeanor counts of resisting an officer and disorderly conduct. The felony carries a possible prison term of three years and a $10,000 fine.
According to the criminal complaint, Kenosha police responded to a city residence at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 4 for a noise complaint. At one point, the defendant attempted to leave the home, but was told he couldn’t while police investigated.
But whatever you do calling police the N-word and telling them to shoot you is never a good idea.
However, the police did a perfectly good job by obeying the law and it seems they used a taser to shoot him, so in the end, the man got what he asked for and the police officers got a clean record.
After police were able to get him into custody, the complaint states he continued to swear at them and was screaming, yelling, and banging his head against the side window of the squad car.
While en route to the jail, the complaint states the defendant calmed down and apologized.
I’m shrewd, passionate, learned and energetic, God-fearing and patriotic. I’ve done a fine job reintroducing good old American conservatism to a new generation of Americans. I’ve earned the love and friendship of many, the hatred of some, but the respect of all.
