When police responded to an open-line 911 call, they reported finding a woman with blood on her face and an outstanding warrant.
Destinee M. Lyons, 41, West Allis, is charged with failure to report to jail and disorderly conduct as an act of domestic abuse.
On Dec. 3, 2014, Lyons was convicted in Waupaca County of three counts of obstructing an officer and one count of disorderly conduct.
The sentence was withheld, and she was placed on two years probation with the condition that she maintain absolute sobriety and not consume any alcohol.
On Nov. 24, 2015, Lyons was charged with a fourth drunken driving offense in Winnebago County.
On Dec. 8, 2015, Lyons’ probation was revoked, and she was sentenced to eight months in jail, granted work release and allowed to serve her time in Milwaukee County if arrangements could be made.
On Jan. 5, 2016, Lyons did not report to Waupaca County jail or any other jail, according to court records. A warrant was issued for her arrest on Jan. 21.
On the evening of Saturday, Feb. 20, Marion Police Officer Eric Krause was dispatched to an apartment on the 400 block of North Main Street in response to a 911 open-line call.
According to the criminal complaint, James Lyons answered the door and would not allow Krause to enter the apartment.
When Krause explained why he was there, James Lyons initially denied calling 911, then said he may have called because he could hear the people upstairs arguing over a pot deal, the complaint says.
Krause reported he observed blood on the floor, then he saw Alfredo Ramirez, who had scratches on his face, neck and back and was bleeding.
After James Lyons allowed Krause into the apartment, the officer saw Destinee Lyons sitting on a couch. She had cuts on her hands, blood on her face, and the back of her shirt had been ripped.
Destinee Lyons refused to answer any questions, police say. She was taken into custody and refused to take a breath-alcohol test at the jail.
While she was being transported to the hospital, Lyons reportedly threatened to find Krause while he was off duty and beat him up. She also threatened to burn down his house, the complaint says.
Lyons is currently in custody on a $2,500 cash bond.
