Jamie L. Schucknecht, 38, New London, was charged with felony child abuse and felony bail jumping.
At 1:40 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 1, New London Police Officers Mike Harlow and Ben Schmidt were dispatched to a home on East Spring Street in response to a domestic disturbance.
When they arrived, Harlow spoke with a 43-year-old woman while Schmidt spoke with a 16-year-old girl.
The girl said Schucknecht was intoxicated and had been fighting with her mother. She said he headbutted her in the face, according to the criminal complaint.
The woman said she and Schucknecht had spent the evening at a bar to celebrate her birthday. Schucknecht allegedly became very intoxicated and began fighting with another patron. He was then kicked out of the bar.
Schucknecht then told the woman he wanted to go to another bar. When she said no, Schucknecht became belligerent, the complaint says, and was verbally and physically abusive after they returned home.
The woman told police that Schucknecht punched her and shoved her daughter out of the house, locking the door. As he tried to shove her out of the house, Schucknecht allegedly slammed the door shut on her, bruising her arms and legs.
Schucknecht told the officers he wanted the woman and the girl removed from his home. Police knew from prior contacts that the woman moved into the house with him when Schucknecht bought it and had previously lived with him at another address.
This same incident led to charges of battery, disorderly conduct and felony bail jumping against Schucknecht on Sept. 3. The charges related to the 16-year-old girl were filed Oct. 30.
On March 26, Schucknecht was charged in Waupaca County Circuit Court with two counts of burglary and four counts of theft. He was released from custody on a $2,000 signature bond with the condition that he not commit any crimes.
