A local man who created a stir and injured a police officer at the Probation and Parole Office on Friday now faces a $10,000 cash bond upon his initial appearance in Langlade County Court.
Jordan L. Campbell, 34, Gleason, is charged with battery to a law enforcement officer, making terrorist threats, felony bail jumping, criminal damage to property, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct. All charges carry a repeat offender enhancement.
Campbell was placed on a $10,000 cash bond with an instruction to have no contact with the law enforcement victim.
Campbell had been free on a $5,000 signature bond for charges of methamphetamine, controlled substance, and drug paraphernalia possessions as a repeater since Jan. 11. That bond remained in effect during the incident on Oct. 1.
On that date, according to the criminal complaint, an officer responded to a call for service at the Department of Corrections Antigo office, where Campbell became extremely angry when told he was going to jail as requested by probation staff. Campbell was yelling and cursing at the agents.
When the officer attempted to place Campbell in handcuffs, he head-butted the wall and continued to yell and swear at the agents.
Campbell then stated that when he got out of jail he was going to burn down the probation building.
As the officer moved Campbell outside, he continued to resist and was able to escape the officer’s grasp, during which struggle the officer sustained a cut to his finger.
A probation agent was able to secure the officer’s radio and call for assistance and a detective responded to get Campbell under control.
Campbell is scheduled for an adjourned initial court appearance on Oct. 18.
