Anthony R. Weber, 23, Marion, was charged with felony bail jumping, misdemeanor bail jumping, misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct.
On Feb. 21, Weber appeared in Waupaca County Circuit Court on charges of fleeing an officer and a third drunken driving offense. He was released from custody on a $2,000 signature bond with the condition that he not commit any crimes.
At 7:25 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, Deputy Pat Gorchals was dispatched to a home on Pigeon River Shores in the town of Larrabee. There he met with Weber’s grandparents, who were standing outside their house.
According to the criminal complaint, the grandparents told Gorchals that Weber became enraged at his grandmother when she refused to go out and buy him some cigarettes.
He allegedly began yelling at his grandmother and calling her obscene names. He is also accused of slapping her in the face and tipping a kitchen table over onto the floor.
Weber grabbed several kitchen knives and threatened to slit his grandmother’s throat, the complaint says.
Gorchals could see Weber through the front window and ordered him to come outside. He then took him into custody.
At the jail, Weber admitted to becoming angry and to using loud, profane language, the complaint says. He reportedly said he grabbed the knives, but did not remember threatening to use them.
