Robert W. Marsh, 47, New London, was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, resisting an officer and three counts each of felony and misdemeanor bail jumping.
On Dec. 19, Sgt. Todd Sarazin with the New London Police Department, saw Marsh standing beside a red pickup truck in a parking lot. There was a warrant to take Marsh into custody.
According to the criminal complaint, Marsh had a ball-peen hammer in his hand. When he noticed Sarazin, Marsh dropped the hammer and walked briskly away toward the rear entrance of a bar.
Sarazin caught up with Marsh as he entered the bar. The officer grabbed Marsh by the arm, who pulled away and the two fell through the door onto the floor of the bar, the complaint says.
Two other officers were called to the scene to assist with handcuffing Marsh.
After he was arrested, police reported finding 0.7 grams of marijuana in Marsh’s jacket pocket.
On April 29, 2014, Marsh appeared in Waupaca County circuit court on multiple felony drug charges and was released on a $3,000 signature bond with the conditions that he not commit any crimes or possess any illegal drugs.
On Nov. 21, he was arrested for a third drunken driving offense and released from custody on a $500 signature bond.
Marsh was released Dec. 19 on a $5,000 signature bond with the same conditions.
