Village of Hartland

Child pornography

Charges are pending for a Hartland man, 48, who violated the conditions of his parole and was reported viewing child pornography.

Incident reports say a probation and parole agent recently tipped off the Hartland Police to say that the man, who was formally charged for possession of child pornography in 2005, had been seeking out or viewing inappropriate material.

The Hartland Police arrested the Capitol Drive resident on April 12 in the afternoon. In August of last year, he had been given an alternative to revocation, which kept him from prison, but he immediately bought a cell phone and searched for videos that violated the restrictions of his parole. He also told police that in addition to using his cell phone to surf the web, he would use his father's computer "while he was at church" to search for illicit materials.

Police are seeking charges of strangulation, battery and domestic violence against a 50-year-old man after an incident on April 9 with his girlfriend.

According to the police report, police were called at 1:20 a.m. for a possible domestic situation and were notified that the man had left the residence. The victim told police she was upstairs with the man when he noticed some new furniture and asked her about it. The two came downstairs to talk and she said he sat in a chair and stared straight ahead. He then unbuckled his belt and removed it, striking her four to six times. She told police he also struck her in the face several times with a closed fist. Both of her eyes were red, swollen and bruised, the report noted. The woman said she tried to get away and that the man put his hands around her neck and choked her; she said she believes she lost consciousness as a result.

The case will be forwarded to the Waukesha County District Attorney's office for review.

Domestic situation

A 29-year-old Waukesha man is being referred on charges of disorderly conduct, criminal damage to property and endangering safety.

According to the police report, officers were called to a residence for a disorderly subject at 10:30 p.m. on April 6. A woman told police that a man had just thrown a beer bottle at her and it struck her house, causing damage.

The woman said the man just "snapped" and started yelling and cursing at her and then threw the bottle.

Authorities located the man driving away from the scene and he was arrested for drunken driving. A search of his vehicle found an empty beer bottle tucked in the pocket of the driver's seat and a six-pack on the front passenger seat and floor. In the console of the vehicle, police found a .40 caliber pistol.

No citations issued

One driver was injured following an accident on April 16 at Highway 67 and Blue Ribbon Drive.

According to the police report, the vehicles driven by Russell A. Schroeder, 52, Elkhorn, and Heather M. Becker, 25, 1164 Lowell Drive, #3, were southbound on Highway 67 when an unknown vehicle stopped abruptly to turn onto Aurora Drive, not at the turn lane. Becker braked to avoid striking an unknown vehicle and Schroeder braked but struck Becker's vehicle, causing damage.

Becker sought medical attention on her own after the incident, according to the police report.

Inattentive driving

Police were called to an accident in the 200 block of Oakwood Avenue on April 11.

According to the police report, Lee A. Dziatkiewicz, 246 N. Fowler No. 24, turned left from Fowler Street onto Oakwood Avenue and failed to navigate the curve in the road, and drove into the ditch, almost ending up in Fowler Lake.

The driver was removed from the vehicle and suffered no injuries. An ambulance was dispatched as a precaution, but no transport was needed.

Dziatkiewicz was cited for inattentive driving and for driving without a valid license.
