Beaver Dam Man Found Guilty Of Injuring Police Officer

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam man was found guilty Wednesday of injuring a police officer in an incident earlier this year. Eric Henson plead no contest to a felony count of Battery to a Law Enforcement Officer. Two additional felony counts were dismissed but read into the record. Beaver Dam Police were attempting to take Henson into custody on Domestic Disorderly Conduct charges out of Poynette on January 12 when he leapt from his attic stairs punching at the officers while yelling “just kill me.” The 33-year-old then head-butted an officer and threatened him, saying “you’re dead.” Later at the hospital, Henson told investigators that he remembers nothing of the incident and blacked out. Apologizing, he noted that he has Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and said he was in “fight or flight” mode. The officer sustained cuts and abrasions. A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered and Henson is due back in court on July 27th.
