Earlier today, law enforcement took two people into custody regarding an incident that occurred on the courthouse steps. A 20-year-old male was arrested for battery, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. A 34-year-old female was arrested for disorderly conduct. During the arrests law enforcement needed to deploy several officers to keep crowds of citizens and media from interfering.
The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department and the Kenosha Police Department fully recognize the importance of media coverage surrounding the trial. The media and the public have a responsibility to give space to law enforcement and allow them to perform their duties. Please do so.
Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
