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

Local man is headed to prison for drug counts
space
An Antigo man linked to drug sales in Oneida County has been sentenced to time in prison.

Ryan R. Novosad, 37, will serve four years of incarceration, followed by another four years of extended supervision as part of a plea agreement reached last week. Judge Patrick O’Melia handed down the ruling.

Novosad, who lists addresses in online court records on both Sixth and Fifth Avenues, received the term after pleading no contest to three counts — possession of methamphetamine, the manufacture or delivery of amphetamine and a felony charge of bail jumping. The drug counts date to 2013. Additional charges were dismissed in a plea agreement.

Novosad has already served 182 days in jail while the case was pending.

Driver cited for hit, run in stop sign crash
space
An Aniwa man whose vehicle was witnessed hitting a stop sign near Langlade Hospital just before 7 p.m. Sunday night is facing multiple charges today, including an allegation of hit and run.

Police found the suspect at a local tavern after a witness reported seeing the driver proceed into the parking lot, put the downed sign in the grass and drive away.

Officials said the 52-year-old man didn’t have a valid driver’s license. He also didn’t have his vehicle equipped with an ignition interlock device as required by a drunken driving conviction. A charge of obstructing an officer is also pending.

His was among an assortment of weekend arrests.

A 29-year-old Bryant man was arrested for a fourth offense of drunken driving as a result of a 2:46 a.m. stop Sunday along Highway 45 north of Highway N. Officials said he was traveling in excess of the posted limit and failed field sobriety tests. He too did not have a driver’s license nor did he have his auto equipped with an ignition interlock device. A bail jumping charge is also expected to be filed.

A 23-year-old Antigo woman was arrested for her first count of drunken driving during a 2:55 a.m. stop
