Man accused of domestic violence
Charges include intimidation, battery, felony child neglect
Michael J. Biskupski, 31, Tigerton, is charged with intimidation of a victim, battery and disorderly conduct as acts of domestic abuse, felony child neglect and obstructing an officer.
At 10:13 p.m. Tuesday, June 16, Waupaca County deputies Matt Whitaker and Adam Lange responded to a domestic complaint at a home in Scandinavia.
According to the criminal complaint, the Waupaca County Communications Center received a 911 call. Dispatch could hear a man and a woman arguing over the open line.
Dispatch disconnected and returned the call.
A man answered the phone and said his children were playing with the phone.
In the background, dispatch reported hearing a woman screaming that it was not the children. He hung up.
Dispatch called again.
The same man answered the phone. He reportedly said he was at an address on Cook Street in New London.
Coordinates from the call indicated it was coming from an address in the village of Scandinavia.
Dispatch advised the man that officers needed to speak with him and the woman.
He became angry and hung up again, the complaint says.
Deputies Whitaker and Lange went to the Scandinavia address, while New London police went to the address where the man said he was located.
Earlier that evening, a 911 caller reported seeing a silver Chevy Impala near Spiegelberg Implement on State Highway 54, south of Manawa.
A man was screaming at a woman and threw her purse out the window.
Whitaker followed up on the call, but was unable to locate the vehicle.
When he arrived at the house in Scandinavia, Whitaker saw a car in the driveway that matched the description of the Impala the 911 caller reported earlier.
The woman told Whitaker they had started arguing on State 54 near Manawa.
When asked if Biskupski had injured her, she showed Whitaker she had a cut lip.
The woman requested enforcement of a 72-hour contact prohibition.
When Lange explained the no-contact enforcement to Biskupski, he reportedly replied that he would return the next day to see his children.
Lange told Biskupski he would be arrested if he returned.
Biskupski said he didn’t care and law enforcement would not know if he did go back to the home, the complaint says.
Shortly before 1 a.m. June 17, Lange met with a Tigerton woman who said an 8-year-old girl had been in the car with Biskupski during the altercation.
She had a bruise on her forehead and a cigarette burn on her chin.
The girl said the burn was due to Biskupski holding a cigarette in his hand during the altercation, and the bruise happened during the struggle over the purse.
Biskupski was released from custody on a $2,000 signature bond.
He is prohbitied from having any contact with the victim.
