Woman charged with battery
Terry A. Ernst, 37, Bancroft, was charged with felony intimidation of a victim, three counts of criminal damage to property, misdemeanor battery and disorderly conduct.
Shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Department received a 911 call from a 68-year-old man, asking his daughter be removed from his home.
Before the call was completed, the phone was disconnected.
Deputy Dan Lewinski was dispatched to the home.
When he arrived, nobody answered the door.
Attempts to contact the number, from which the 911 call originated, were unsuccessful.
While Lewinski was at the home, dispatch informed him the man had gone to the New London Police Department.
The man told police he had received a call earlier, informing him his daughter, Ernst, had scratched his girlfriend’s face.
As he was driving toward his girlfriend’s home, the man noticed Ernst’s vehicle behind him.
They both pulled over to the side of the road.
According to the criminal complaint, Ernst began shoving the man after he exited his pickup truck.
He climbed back into his truck and left.
When he returned home, the man saw Ernst’s vehicle in his driveway.
Once inside the house, Ernst allegedly began yelling at the man and pushing him around.
When he attempted to call 911, she pulled the phone cord out of the wall and later broke his cellphone, the complaint says.
The man fled his home and went to the police station.
