BD Man Faces Stalking Charges

1/13/12 – A Beaver Dam man is facing stalking charges after allegedly threatening his former boss after being fired. 41-year-old John Eggert made his initial appearance this week on charges of stalking and disorderly conduct, use of a dangerous weapon. According to prosecutors, Eggert was fired in December and he allegedly told co-workers that if he got access to a gun he would start at the front desk and work his way down. The criminal complaint states Eggert was fired for calling the manager several names during an argument, and he told the manager she would regret firing him. Police met with Eggert and he denied making any threats. However, earlier this month the manager told police that Eggert again had threatened her after being denied unemployment benefits. Prosecutors say Eggert continued to contact the manager even after police told him not to. He’s due back in court next month.
