Jesse J. Kabble, 24, New London, was charged Oct. 14 with first-degree reckless endangerment, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.
On Oct. 12, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Patrick Gorchals was dispatched to Graichen Sanitation near New London.
Gorchals met with two employees who reported that Kabble had thrown a bottle at their dump truck and shattered the windshield. They said they were driving the truck southbound on Larry Road in the town of Lebanon when Kabble, who was driving in the opposite direction, threw a soda bottle out of the sunroof of his car and hit the windshield.
They also said Kabble was an employee at Graichen Sanitation and did not get along with the driver of the dump truck.
Kabble initially denied throwing a bottle and claimed that the dump truck had tried to run him off the road, causing him to go onto the shoulder to avoid a collision.
Gorchals reported that there was no evidence that a vehicle had driven off Larry Road between Graichen Sanitation and Kabble’s home. He later arrested Kabble.
After arriving at the jail, Kabble reportedly told Gorchals that he did throw a bottle at the truck, but did not expect the windshield to break.
Kabble faces up to 12 years in prison if convicted of first-degree reckless endangerment.
