The owner of one of Waukesha’s newest restaurants is facing domestic abuse charges after he allegedly got into a physical altercation with his girlfriend on April 25.
Ramon A. Mitre Hernandez, 28, who owns , was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court Thursday with one count of misdemeanor battery domestic abuse, one count of disorderly conduct domestic abuse and one count of misdemeanor bail jumping after he allegedly gave a “KO” punch – a term used in boxing – to his girlfriend. If convicted, he faces up to 21 months in prison and $21,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, after his girlfriend –who works at the restaurant—was done working on April 25, they went to another establishment to meet a friend. At about 11:30 p.m. the friend wanted to go to to another establishment, however they didn’t so they dropped him off there.
After dropping off the friend, the complaint states Mitre Hernandez began talking about how he wanted to move back to New York, to which his girlfriend made the comment “nothing is holding you back,” which then turned into an argument about past issues.
The complaint alleges the girlfriend then got out of the vehicle and began to walk home. Once getting back to their apartment, the document states the two got into a verbal argument, which turned physical when he allegedly pushed her to the ground.
The complaint also alleges a neighbor heard the girlfriend banging and making loud noises in order to get into the home and when Mitre Hernandez wouldn’t let her in she kicked him in the groin and chest. The neighbor then allegedly notice Mitre Hernandez hit his girlfriend with a “KO” punch, pin her to the ground at which time she then began “screaming bloody murder.”
The complaint states Mitre Hernandez has been free on a $500 signature bond for a 2010 charge of disorderly conduct prior to the April incident.
The complaint states the girlfriend was also charged with one count of disorderly conduct domestic abuse in the incident.
A voicemail message was left with Mitre Hernandez's defense attorney, Richard Martin, which was not immediately returned.
