Katie M. Prokash, 26, Oshkosh, was charged Dec. 21 in Waupaca County Circuit Court with operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent, disorderly conduct, and lewd and lascivious behavior.
On the night of Nov. 24, police received a report of a vehicle stolen from a parking lot near Kangaroo K’s Tavern in Marion.
When Marion police arrived at the scene, the owner of the missing Chevy pickup truck said his keys were missing and he may have dropped them in the parking lot or left them in the door lock.
Witnesses told police that earlier that night Prokash began taking off her clothes and fighting with some of the other customers before being told to leave the bar.
At about the same time that Marion police were investigating the incident at the bar, Waupaca County Sheriff’s Deputy Clint Thobaben was dispatched to a reported crash on State Highway 110, south of Marion.
Thobaben reported finding a Chevy pickup truck in a front yard and a woman in the driver’s seat who appeared unconscious and injured. When he knocked on the window to get her to unlock the door, the woman did not respond. Thobaben had to use his baton to force open the back passenger window in order to open the vehicle’s door for emergency medical workers.
The truck was identified as the one reported stolen in Marion.
In addition to criminal charges, Prokash was issued a citation for operating while intoxicated and refusing to take an intoxication test.
