Warrant Issued For Suspect Accused Of Threatening Police

(Beaver Dam) A Milwaukee man accused of threatening a Beaver Dam police officer while drunk had a bench warrant issued yesterday (Wednesday) for failing to appear at an arraignment hearing. Jose Vallejo Castro was reportedly intoxicated, angering local business owners, when officers took him to the police station to charge his phone so he could arrange transportation back to Milwaukee. While en route, the 35-year-old allegedly made verbal threats to police. At the station, Castro reportedly made a gun gesture with his hand, pointed it at an officer and made a shooting sound effect, prompting his arrest. Court records indicate that Castro’s attorney said their client was “picked up by Immigration” and “taken back to Mexico.” Judge Joseph Sciascia granted the prosecutor’s request in authorizing the bench warrant.
