Nearly all defendants appeared via video from the Langlade County Jail, including;

—Timothy M. Butts, 32, Milwaukee, who was ordered held on a $1,000 cash bond in a case dating all the way back to 2013. Butts, was brought to Langlade County after authorities investigating an altercation Sunday in Marathon County discovered he was wanted on an outstanding warrant.

He was pulled over minutes later and gave officers a false name.

—Michael J. Turcotte, 26, N4510 County Rd. H, was order
