More charges filed against New London man
Scotty R. Croy, 42, New London, was charged with three counts each of disorderly conduct and felony bail jumping.
On April 25, Croy appeared in Waupaca County Circuit Court and was charged with felony battery, auto theft, three counts of fleeing an officer, two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of disorderly conduct and a third drunken driving offense. Judge Raymond Huber set a $5,000 cash bond, and Croy remained in custody.
On July 14, Croy returned to court, appeared before Judge John Hoffmann and pleaded guilty to one count each of felony battery, a third OWI, fleeing an officer and reckless endangerment. The remaining counts were dismissed and read into the record.
Hoffmann scheduled Croy’s sentencing for Sept. 7 and amended his bond to a $5,000 signature bond. Croy was subsequently released from custody with the conditions that he not commit any more crimes or consume alcohol or illegal drugs.
Shortly after midnight on Saturday, Sept. 3, New London police received a call that a man named Scott was riding a blue bike and throwing beer bottles onto Hancock Street.
Sgt. Earl Ruckdashel responded to the area and found Croy riding a bike on Mill Street. He stopped Croy and questioned him about the incident. Croy denied throwing beer bottles and said he was riding back from a convenience story where he had purchased cigarettes, according to the criminal complaint.
New London police were called back out to Hancock Street less than two hours later. A woman who lives on Hancock Street said Croy had been intoxicated and banging on her door because she had a male friend over. Police did not find Croy in the neighborhood.
At 3:30 a.m. that same morning, New London police were called to the woman’s home on Hancock Street a third time regarding Croy. Officer Chase Schroeder reported finding Croy hiding behind some boxes in the yard.
On Tuesday, Sept. 6, Croy appeared in court on the disorderly conduct and bail jumping charges. Judge Philip Kirk released him from custody on a $1,000 signature bond.
On Sept. 7, Croy returned to court and pleaded not guilty to the Sept. 6 charges. His sentencing hearing on the earlier convictions was postponed.
