A Wisconsin Veterans Home resident allegedly threatened to kill a CNA.
William D. Wood, 69, King, is charged with felony stalking, making threats to injure and disorderly conduct.
On Feb. 26, Waupaca County Deputy Nate Nelson met with staff at the WVH who said Wood threatened to get a gun and kill a 53-year-old CNA.
According to the criminal complaint, Wood accused the CNA of sexual misconduct, then became unhappy with the outcome of an internal investigation.
When a state investigator spoke with Wood, the investigator reported he had threatened to bring a gun to Ainsworth Hall and kill the CNA.
The home’s director told Nelson that Wood had the physical and financial means to carry out the threats while frequenting local bars and restaurants.
The nursing director said Wood’s comments to the CNA have escalated from vulgar to threatening.
She described Wood as a threat to anybody he does not like or who tries to make him follow the rules.
The CNA told Nelson that Wood has been harassing her for about eight months, called her names, threatened to sue her and once aimed his scooter at her in an apparent attempt to run her down.
Judge Raymond Huber released Wood from the county jail on a $5,000 signature bond with conditions that he enroll in the Milwaukee VA Medical Center and maintain absolute sobriety.
Wood is scheduled for an adjourned initial court appearance on March 28.
