Two New London men face criminal charges for allegedly shooting off a shotgun while drunk.
Theodore A. Roloff, 21, New London, is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and disorderly conduct.
Eric G. Parker, 21, New London, is charged with possession of a firearm while intoxicated and disorderly conduct.
Shortly after 1 a.m. Monday, July 20, Deputy Sara Besel was dispatched to a home on Cut Off Road in the town of Mukwa.
A woman had called 911 to report that two men were trespassing on her property and shooting guns.
Before Besel arrived, New London police had detained Roloff and Parker and confiscated a 12-gauge shotgun.
The woman told Besel that loud noises awakened her and her husband. They went to the front door and could hear two men talking. They could also see the glow of a cigarette across the yard.
They yelled out to the men, asking what they were doing on their property.
According to the criminal complaint, one of the men, later identified as Parker, yelled back that it was his property and started walking toward them with the gun in his hand. He then gave the shotgun to the husband and waited for the police to arrive. Roloff then joined them.
Police found shell casings on the driveway about 40 feet from the house.
A preliminary breath test indicated Parker had a 0.194 blood-alcohol level and Roloff had a 0.173 blood-alcohol level.
Roloff was convicted of felony bail jumping on Nov. 18, 2014, in Outagamie County.
