Man charged with threatening officer
Suspect released after posting $2,000 cash bond
Eric A. Brickey, 31, Weyauwega, is charged with threatening an officer, resisting an officer and misdemeanor bail jumping.
He was released from custody after posting a $2,000 cash bond.
At approximately 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19, Weyauwega Police Officer Elmer Keberlein was dispatched to a disorderly complaint at Wilson’s Brickhouse on North Mill Street.
When he arrived at the scene, the officer encountered a man standing on the sidewalk just north of the bar.
“I could see the subject was visibly intoxicated,” the officer reported. “His balance was unsteady and he frequently slurred his words.”
The man identified himself as Brickey.
According to the criminal complaint, Brickey called the officer a liar and screamed profanities at him.
When Brickey refused to comply with the officer’s orders and began walking away, the officer deployed his stun gun.
Brickey immediately dropped to the sidewalk.
The officer transported Brickey to the hospital in Waupaca for medical clearance, and then to the county jail.
Brickey reportedly threatened to shoot the officer and his family.
“He stated he would kill my family, or just my kids or my wife, so I would be forced to live without them,” the officer reported.
On Oct. 2, 2019, Brickey was charged with disorderly conduct and released on a $1,000 signature bond with the condition that he maintain absolute sobriety.
On Nov. 26, 2019, Brickey was charged with misdemeanor bail jumping and released on a $500 signature bond with the condition that he maintain absolute sobriety.
