A repeat offender is back in custody following a domestic disruption and narcotics discovery Oct. 4..

Levi M. Kopacz, 39, White Lake, is charged with possession of methamphetamine, second offense possession of THC, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct. The latter two charges carry a domestic abuse enhancement, and all four counts feature a repeat offender enhancement.

Kopacz was ordered to a $2,000 cash bond with conditions that he not use or possess controlled substances illegally and have no contact with the victim.

According to the criminal complaint, on the evening of Oct. 4, a sergeant responded to a town of Wolf River residence where the victim turned over a bag of needles and a small vial of a white crystalline substance that tested positive as meth. The night before, during an argument, Kopacz had picked up a vacuum cleaner and smashed it on a futon while yelling.

The sergeant was then given a black box that contained four vacuum sealed bags with a total of 72.8 grams of a green plant material that tested positive for the presence of THC. He then made contact with Kopacz, who was holding a large butcher knife in the living room, “sweating heavily, crying, and difficult to understand.”

Kopacz was previously convicted of burglary as a repeater in Marathon County in September 2011, upon which he served just over eight years in custody.
