Bail set at $10,000 for teen cited for beating boy with bat
A young Antigo man accused of striking a teen with a baseball bat over concerns he hadn’t been paid $100 for a marijuana delivery remains jailed in the local lockup awaiting a second appearance today in front of Langlade County Judge Fred Kawalski.
Bail was set at $10,000 cash Monday afternoon, less then 24 hours after 18-year-old Dylan T. Madderom of 235 Park St. allegedly beat his 16-year-old victim about the head and chest, requiring transport to St. Joseph Hospital in Marshfield for further observation and treatment. Although serious, officials did not believe the injuries to be life-threatening.
An earlier report of the incident indicated that the suspect was 17 years old.
A criminal complaint had not yet been filed by the time of Monday’s hearing but information provided by the district attorney’s office today details the allegations. According to officials, Madderom had attempted to conceal his identity with a T-shirt when he approached the 16-year-old who had been standing outside a vehicle talking to friends near North Elementary School in the vicinity of the Spring Brook walking trail. The teen, however, recognized him and called him by his first
Local teen beats boy with baseball bat, marijuana cited as reason
An Antigo teen is hospitalized with a head wound and another is in jail following a beating which police blame on a $100 drug deal.
Chief Eric Roller advised today that the 17-year-old suspect was caught and has since confessed to striking his 16-year-old victim with a baseball bat during an encounter early Monday night in the vicinity of the Spring Brook walking trail near North Elementary School.
Witnesses told police that the latter was hit three times, first being struck in the head and after falling to the ground, he was hit in the chest.
The injured teen was initially taken to Langlade Hospital via a private vehicle. Roller said the boy was then transferred to St. Joseph Hospital in Marshfield. His injuries were not believed to be life-threatening.
The beating was apparently a form of retribution for failed payment.
The 17-year-old told investigators that the other male owed him $100 for a marijuana deal.
The suspect is being referred to the district attorney’s office on multiple charges including substantial battery, intentionally causing bodily harm to a child, reckless endangerment of safety and delivery of marijuana.
