Reeseville Man Pleads Guilty To Attacking Officers

3/31/17 – A Reeseville man was in court yesterday for his plea hearing on charges he attacked arresting officers. Jordan Kemper pled guilty to one felony count of Battery to Law Enforcement and Threatening Law Enforcement and pled no contest to misdemeanor Criminal Damage to Property. In December, police were twice called to the 21-year-old’s apartment for a report of a disturbance within a one-hour span.  Officers were told that Kemper was being loud because he had drunk two large cans of Four Loko, which is an alcoholic beverage that is roughly 12% alcohol-by-volume and was once banned in several states.  The first time police were on scene, Kemper was verbally aggressive and throwing items.  On the second visit, they arrested Kemper, who head-butted one officer and attempted to spit on another.  Kemper then threatened to ‘hunt down and kill’ a third officer and his family when that officer arrived at the scene to take Kemper to jail.  During the transport, Kemper also kicked out both rear windows of the squad car.  Upon arrival, Kemper was described as being combative with the jail staff and was placed in a padded room for his own safety, as he already had bruises on his head from hitting it against the glass in the squad car.  A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 15.
