A Necedah woman faces battery and disorderly conduct charges after allegedly kicking down a door, battering a man, and spitting on a deputy.
Rebecca Kraft, 32, is charged with throw or discharge of bodily fluids at public safety worker, misdemeanor battery, criminal damage to property, and disorderly conduct. She faces up to three years imprisonment for the first charge.
According to the criminal complaint:
A Juneau County sheriff’s deputy received a call at about 8:00 pm for an “ongoing physical interaction” at a residence in Necedah on Dec. 12.
Upon arriving at the residence, the officer observed a door had been kicked in and the doorframe had been damaged. The officer was also able to “hear screaming coming from the house.” The officer drew his side arm and entered the residence.
Inside the home, the officer observed “a large white male restraining a female to the living room floor.” The officer drew his taser and ordered the man to lay on the ground. The man raised his hands in the air and lay on the ground. An accompanying deputy placed him in handcuffs.
The man stated he was the one who called 911, and said the female, later identified as Kraft, had kicked in the door, beat him, and “threw candle wax all over the place.” Kraft was handcuffed and escorted to the officer’s squad car. As she was being escorted outside, the officer reported Kraft yelled obscenities at the man.
The officer could smell “a strong odor of intoxicants” on Kraft’s breath. When asked if she had been drinking, Kraft replied she had. Kraft stated it was her birthday and she had drunk some Jack Daniels and Jose Cuervo.
From the back of the squad car, Kraft said the reason she had come to the house because it was “her birthday and she wanted sex” from the man. Kraft stated the man would not open the door so she kicked it in. When the man denied her sex, she “began to beat on him, scream, yell and even grabbed lit candles and began to spread hot wax all over the place.” The officer observed some of that wax had covered the man’s head, neck and shirt.
While being escorted to the Juneau County Jail, Kraft kicked at the windows of the squad car. Once at the jail, her “behavior continued to get worse.” Kraft spit on one of the deputies. Because of her “unwillingness to cooperate, her attempts at slamming her head against the cement walls and spitting,” Kraft was placed into the Juneau County Jail restraint chair.
Kraft was released on a signature bond of $1,500 and under the conditions that she maintain sobriety and not make contact with the man. Her initial appearance in court is scheduled for Jan. 10 at the Juneau County Justice Center.
