Two men are facing charges following a series of disturbances Saturday night at the Buffalo Wild Wings Restaurant on Hwy 10.
Two men appeared in a Portage County courtroom on Monday facing charges stemming from two separate incidents in Stevens Point.
Officers from the Stevens Point Police Department were called to the restaurant twice on Saturday to deal with unruly customers, first at 8:2o PM and again at 10:49 PM.
According to the criminal complaint, Dale Baldridge, 38 of Stevens Point, was arrested for disorderly conduct after he, along with three other men were allegedly causing a disturbance and attempting to order alcohol after they were cut off and for harassing wait staff.
The men were there to watch the Ultimate Fighting Champion pay-per-view event that was promoted by the restaurant.
Baldridge, who was out on bond on drug charges was given a breathalyzer by officers registered .108. As a condition of his current bond, he was not to consume alcohol and he was arrested for bail jumping, along with the disorderly conduct charges.
Later in the evening, officers returned after staff called to report another unwanted person who had been refused further service at the bar.
According to staff, after Gary Konkol, 21, Rosholt, was going out to the parking lot and drinking in his car. He then tried to sneak cans of beer into the bar. When officers found Konkol in the parking lot and questioned him, he gave them a false name and then took off running.
After a short foot chase, he was arrested and then correctly identified. His breathalyzer registered .136.
Circuit Court Judge Edward Zappen ordered a $500 signature bond for Konkol, who was also ordered to maintain sobriety and to have no contact with Buffalo Wild Wings.
Baldridge was also issued a signature bond in the amount of $1,000 and ordered to avoid alcohol and Buffalo Wild Wings.
Both men are due back in court for initial appearances on August. 17.
