In some cases, it could take little more than a minor disagreement for an argument to spin out of control and result in threats of violence. When authorities receive reports of a heated domestic dispute, they have a duty to respond to the scene and further investigate the matter. Reports indicate that a recent incident in which a man in Wisconsin allegedly threatened to harm a woman led to a brief police pursuit that left him facing numerous charges, including domestic violence.
The incident is said to have begun after authorities say they received reports of a domestic dispute on a recent Thursday night. They claim they were notified that a man had threatened a woman’s life during this dispute. Upon arriving at the location, police say they spotted him fleeing the scene in a vehicle, which prompted a brief pursuit that came to a half after tire deflation devices were deployed.
Police say they also learned that the man had several active warrants for various offenses. While no further information was provided as to any information learned during the investigation into the dispute, he is now facing charges for disorderly conduct and domestic violence. He is also facing charges stemming from his alleged involvement in the police pursuit.
Standing accused of domestic violence can be a harrowing process and the penalties for a conviction for similar charges can carry life-altering repercussions. Those who face a similar scenario and wish to seek insight on their available options could benefit from speaking with an attorney as soon as possible for guidance in developing a strong defense. An attorney in Wisconsin can evaluate the charges and evidence against a client and assist in preparing a strategy to pursue the best outcome achievable concerning his or her future during court proceedings.
