Unusual behavior sparks arrest, bath salts may have been a factor
space
Antigo police indicate that evidence of bath salt usage was retrieved from a Lincoln Street home in response to the arrest of an out-of-control man early Sunday.

Authorities said the 20-year-old had broken several items within the household and had become physically aggressive with family members, sparking the 2:19 a.m. call for help. When officers arrived, the suspect fled the scene on foot and was caught during an unsuccessful attempt to scale a fence.

Police said a disassembled writing pen removed from his room contained white powder. It tested positive for MDPV, a known bath salt and a possible reason for the man’s unusual behavior.

The suspect is being referred to the district attorney’s office on counts of possessing drug paraphernalia, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Two individuals, a 27-year-old woman and a 48-year-old man, will face counts of battery and bail jumping for a disturbance which erupted at their Third Avenue home early Sunday. The scuffle involved a third man, age 28, who was found walking in the 2100 block of Neva Road. He was shirtless, his face and chest were dotted with blood and he was intoxicated.

Man faces new charges for alleged drive-by, busy day here in court
space
A White Lake man already facing accusations of child sexual assault returned to the Langlade County courtroom this week on allegations he violated a court order by being within 500 feet of the alleged victim’s residence.

Judge Fred Kawalski set bail at $1,000 cash for 48-year-old Shannon L. Maddix on charges of bail jumping, a felony, and knowingly violating a child abuse injunction.

The alleged infraction occurred on Sunday and was based on reports that Maddix had driven past the victim’s home. Defense counsel for the defendant, Attorney Wright Laufenberg, advised that his client had been with family at church and the vehicle that was allegedly spotted did not belong to them.

The latest case developed after Maddix was released from custody after posting a $3,000 cash bond on allegations he inappropriately touched a teenage girl. Both matters are scheduled to return to court next week.

Bail was also set in other newly-filed matters. Included were as follows:

—$500 cash for Cole W. Karnitz, 29, Bryant, for a fourth offense of drunken driving, driving with a revoked license, failing to equip his auto with an ignition interlock device and bail j
