After allegedly pointing a gun at her husband following an argument, a Plover woman is facing multiple fines and jail time.
Jodi Wojcik, 34, is charged with intentionally pointing a firearm at another person and misdemeanor battery. Both charges carry a maximum sentence of up to a $10,000 fine, nine months imprisonment or both if convicted.
Wojcik makes her initial appearance in Portage County Circuit Court on Aug. 22.
Plover police responded to a residence on the 3000 block of Pendleton Place after a caller reported an incident involving a gun.
A man in the home said he’d been arguing with Wojcik earlier in the day and decided to leave the house because her body language indicated she was going to hit him, according to the complaint. She reportedly locked the doors when he left, and as he left the home via the garage, he told police Wojcik was pointing a gun at him.
When he returned to the home to retrieve some shoes, Wojcik reportedly met him at the door with the gun pointed at him, when she said, “If you come through that door, I’m gonna shoot you.”
The man also told police about an incident in May or June when, while driving on I-39, Wojcik struck him in the face “four or five times” during an argument.
During an interview with officers Wojcik could only vaguely recount the incident. She admitted to grabbing the gun, according to the complaint, but only did so because she claims the man was trying to force his way into the house. She also admitted to locking him out of the house when he left.
Wojcik is currently free on a $500 cash bond.
