Along with the strangulation charge, Glenn D. Kaiser, 38, faces a misdemeanor battery charge and one count of disorderly conduct. For the first offense, Kaiser could be fined $10,000 or be imprisoned for six years or both. For the misdemeanor battery offense, Kaiser could also receive a $10,000 fine, face a nine-month sentence or both and for the disorderly conduct charge, he could pay a $1,000 fine or face 90 days in jail or both.

On March 16, a deputy from the Juneau County Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to Sunrise Hotel in Necedah for a domestic disturbance. A female acquaintance of Kaiser’s told the deputy he tried to kill her and left the hotel on foot.

The deputy spotted Kaiser in the office of the hotel and searched him for contraband. He stated he didn’t do anything wrong and that the female was “crazy.” According to the criminal complaint, the incident started when the female saw that Kaiser was talking to an ex-girlfriend on his phone. She said Kaiser hit her with his boot, then threw her on a couch face down, grabbed her by the neck and strangled her.
After a struggle, the female told police Kaiser kept her down with a “wrestling move” and would not stop choking her. She told police she thought she was going to die because her vision became dark and she was unable to breathe. Kaiser also allegedly grabbed her shorts and pulled on them hard. Kaiser left the room when she dialed 911.
The alleged victim completed a written statement and requested a 72-hour no contact enforcement against Kaiser. The deputy noticed a scratch on the victim’s nose and neck and some redness on her face. No other injuries were observed. She said it was hard to swallow, but declined medical attention.
When the deputy interviewed Kaiser, he said he had been sleeping on a bed in their hotel room when the female threw a phone at his head. Kaiser told her to leave the hotel room, but she “went crazy” and started slapping and punching him repeatedly. He did say he pushed her over the couch arm and gave her a “wedgie.” Two days earlier, Kaiser said the female bit him on the arm and tried to stab him with a knife during an altercation. He showed the officer his arm and he appeared to have bite marks on them.
The female stated she did bite him on March 14, but it was to get him off her. She also admitted to ripping necklaces off him during the fight. Kaiser completed a written statement, lack of consent form and invoked the 72-hour no contact rule. Police spoke to several other people at the hotel and they said they could hear yelling and screaming coming from that room. The female was also arrested for disorderly conduct and battery.
Kaiser has an initial appearance scheduled for April 5 at 9 a.m. at the Juneau County Justice Center. Kaiser is not currently in the Juneau County Jail.
