According to a report, a man was arrested this week after police filed criminal charges against him. The charges are reportedly stemming from allegations that the man tortured a young girl that he know. It isn't clear exactly what the formal charges are or why the man was being investigated, but police say that the man was arrested in Milwaukee after disappearing shortly after charges were filed.
Police responded to a reported shooting earlier this week. The Milwaukee police department is saying that a man was shot and killed during a drug transaction on Tuesday night. Many details of the incident are still unknown. However, police say a 16-years-old boy was arrested and the case had been referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney.
Police made a traffic stop in another state this week. Two people were arrested during the stop and Reese Witherspoon and her husband were the people who were reportedly arrested. News reports indicate that Witherspoon may have tried speaking to police to convince them to let her husband go without arrest. Instead of letting her husband go, police arrested both of them, charging Witherspoon with disorderly conduct and her husband with DUI.
When a person is arrested, they might hear police tell them that they have the right to remain silent. However, sometimes before police arrest or charge a person, they question the person. This is because police might not have enough information to make an arrest but they think that a person might be connected to a crime. If a person decides that they don't want to talk with police or answer their questions, is this a sign that they might be guilty?
Milwaukee police say they have arrested a man that allegedly stabbed a police officer in a state office building. The man is a 25-year-old West Allis resident and police are not saying why they believe the man was the person who stabbed the officer. He allegedly was in a confrontation with Capitol Police when they say he stabbed one of the officers in the neck.
Two men were arrested Monday after police say they were connected to a beating that resulted in the death of a 49-year-old man. They haven't been formally charged but police say they will refer the case to the district attorney's office today. When a case is referred to a district attorney, charges often come shortly after.
