The man alleged to have shot at a Waukesha police officer in an Oct. 23 standoff was in court today, where his attorney asked that he undergo a competency evaluation.
Court Commissioner Thomas Pieper ordered the evaluation for Richard A. Petarius, 76, of Sussex, who was charged with nine felonies and a misdemeanor after he allegedly wielded a sawed-off 12-guage shotgun and fired at an officer during a domestic dispute with his ex-wife at a condo on Waukesha's east side.
A follow-up hearing to review the results of the competency evaluation was scheduled for Nov. 16 at 10 a.m.
