A 22-year-old Stevens Point man is charged with felony reckless endangering after a shooting spree in the Town of Hull.
Cody Grubba, while driving with two companions, reportedly fired a .40 caliber pistol out of a moving vehicle, also shooting at several street signs, on July 12.
At 3:46 AM, Portage County deputies responded to a caller near Granite Ridge Road who was awaken by the sound of gunfire. The caller and her husband observed taillights heading westbound towards Sawmill Road, and the man attempted to follow the vehicle in his truck but lost sight of them.
Deputies found spend shell casings on Granite Ridge Rd. as well as bullet-riddled signs. While investigating on the scene, reports of shots fired near the border of Marathon and Portage County were received. Marathon County Deputies directed their Portage County colleagues to an address on Hay Meadow Dr.
There, deputies found three men, Grubba, Jordan Feltz and Joseph Olszweski. Olszweski admitted that he drove Feltz and Grubba around in his truck and that Grubba fired a pistol out of the window.
Feltz told deputies that the men had been drinking at his residence and later at downtown taverns, but returned to the Hay Meadow Dr. address to shoot Grubba’s pistol. He said that Grubba fired the gun at a 90-degree turn sign east of Sawmill Rd. “a bunch of times.”
Grubba was arrested and transported to the Portage County Jail. He was freed on a $1,000 cash bond and appeared in court on Monday. As a condition of his bond, he was ordered not to drink alcohol and not to possess firearms.
He is due back in court on September 8.
