Screaming woman arrested on County X

On April 20, Waupaca County deputies and Weyauwega Police Chief Gerald Poltrock responded to a complaint on County Trunk X between Galilee and Balcom roads, south of Weyauwega.
A 911 caller reported a woman was walking in the road, screaming and holding her hands as if she was praying. She was described as wearing dark clothes, and the caller believed her first name was Danyelle.
When officers found the woman, identified as Lang, her clothes were completely soaking wet and covered in burrs.
According to the criminal complaint, Lang continued screaming even as Poltrock tried to reassure her the officers were there to help her.
Lang allegedly continued screaming about God and asked the officers if they went to church.
She also said she did nothing wrong by jumping into a pond and accused the officers of treating her unfairly.
Lang was taken to a hospital, where deputies found a key lanyard around Lang’s neck. They reported finding crystal meth inside a metal container on the lanyard.
On Dec. 3, 2015, Lang was convicted of possession of narcotics and placed on two years of probation. A charge of possession of methamphetamine was dismissed and read into the court record.
On Oct. 26, 2015, she was convicted of possession of narcotics and placed on three years of probation.
After her arrest near Weyauwega, Lang was released from custody on a $2,000 signature bond.
