JUNEAU | A 28-year-old Fond du Lac man pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges stemming from a fight that occurred at Tower Lanes in April.
Jacob Lee Gubin is charged with felony battery-bodily harm. He could face up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine if convicted of the charges.
According to the criminal complaint, an employee of Tower Lanes had pointed out Gubin and another man who had been allegedly fighting in the business. The 35-year-old victim had facial injuries and injures to his hand.
He said the fight began over a disagreement over grammar as well as their views on sports teams. He said Gubin had kicked over his chair and then struck him with a closed fist several times and kicked him. The victim originally did not press charges but called police a few days later to say he had received substantial injuries during the fight. When he was kicked on the left side of his face, he suffered three tears to his retina that needed surgery to fix.
Gubin was ordered to not have any violent or abusive contact with anyone. A telephone scheduling conference is scheduled for Nov. 5.
