Jeremy R. Buhrow, 30, Ripon, was charged with substantial battery as an act of domestic abuse and resisting an officer.
At approximately 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 16, Reserve Deputies Zach Mulroy and Jim Meyers were on foot patrol at the Wolf River Campground in Mukwa. They stopped to speak with Reserve Lt. Jon Robenhagen.
The officers then heard a woman screaming for help. They then saw Buhrow standing behind a parked car with his hand cocked into a fist, looking down as if he was getting ready to punch somebody who was down on the ground.
Mulroy and Meyers ran to the other side of the car and saw Buhrow punching a 34-year-old woman in the face, according to the criminal complaint. They grabbed Buhrow to restrain him. He went to the ground and tucked his hands under his torso so the deputies could not gain control of his arms, the complaint says.
Robenhagen called an ambulance because the woman’s injuries were so severe that her left eye was swollen shut, and she had lacerations and bruising on her face. She was taken to Theda Clark Medical Center in Neenah where she was treated for a broken left orbital and a broken nose.
The woman told the deputies that Buhrow was her boyfriend and that he had hit her at least 10 times.
When Robenhagen asked her if she was afraid that Buhrow would hit her again, the woman reportedly said, “Yes, only if he drinks.”
