Intoxicated Man Faces Felonies After Passing Out in the Grass

Suspect tells police he loves them after they wake him up while in a drunken stupor, according to a criminal complaint.

A 57-year-old Waukesha man, who apparently "loves" the police, is facing felony charges after he allegedly passed out drunk in a grassy area near .

Michael J. Remmel recently was charged in with one count of felony bail jumping. If convicted, he faces up to 12 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

At 8:47 p.m. Thursday, Waukesha police were called to La Casa after someone spotted Remmel lying in the grass near the parking lot on Caroline Street with his feet up on a picnic table. When officers approached him, one shook Remmel’s shoulder and yelled until he opened his eyes.

Once Remmel woke up, he looked at the officers and said “I love you guys.”

An empty bottle of vodka was laying near Remmel and he had a blood alcohol level of 0.222 percent at the time of the incident.

He’s currently being held in Waukesha County Jail on $1,000 bond

The man needs help(treatment), not jail or imprisonment. Without help, he'll just be a drunk again when he gets out.

Get him some help and let him get on with his life. This is America, not Hitlerville. People in wisconsin are the most self-righteous in this world.

Felony bail jumping indicates he was free on bail from another felony case and violated a bail restriction, not that what he did here was a felony.

lifelongres is right. This guy was on bail for a pending felony charge for something unrelated. He has a bail restriction to not possess or consume alcohol. Ccap inticates the original charge was- Battery to Law Enforcement Officers, Fire Fighters or Commission Wardens (Class H felony).
