Crystal L. Secrist was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on Thursday with one count of criminal damage to property and one count of felony criminal damage to property. If convicted, she faces up to four years in prison and $20,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
Secrist was at O’Connor’s Perfect Pint, 8423 W. Greenfield Ave., where she saw her ex-husband who told her he just wanted to be friends with her and then left the bar. Minutes later the man got a call from a bar employee who said Secrist just told people she was going to run him over with her car.
The man called his neighbor in the 1400 block of South 85th Street and told him to watch for his ex-wife at his house. She eventually showed up and began to break stuff in his yard and kick another woman’s Mercedes parked there, causing $3,500 in damage to the car.
The neighbor called police and arrested Secrist.
She’s currently free on $400 bail while awaiting trial.
