A 42-year-old Waukesha man is facing charges after Milwaukee police officers let him go twice in one night and he then decided to go back to the police station and threaten officers, according to a criminal complaint.
Dione Wendell Haywood was charged in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on June 8 with one count of disorderly conduct. If convicted, he faces up to 90 days in jail and $1,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 2:18 a.m. June 6, a Milwaukee police officer on patrol spotted Haywood driving a Chevrolet Impala toward oncoming traffic in the 3100 block of North 42nd Street and pulled him over. The officer discovered Haywood’s license was suspended and the license plate on the vehicle wasn’t for the Impala. Haywood was taken to the District 7 police station where he was told not to drive and was released. However a half hour later, a police officer spotted him driving the Impala again near North Sherman Boulevard and West Burleigh Street.
Haywood was again taken to the police station and was told to call an acquaintance to pick him up. While waiting for someone to come, Haywood began yelling profanities and making gestures before saying he wanted to fight the officers.
He was then picked up from the station, However, he returned again at 4:15 a.m. and began creating a disturbance. An officer told Haywood he was placing him under arrest for disorderly conduct, so Haywood ran out of the station, but was apprehended shortly afterwards.
Haywood has been turned over to the JUSTICE 2000 program while awaiting trial.
