A 26-year-old Black River Falls man has been charged with threatening a woman with bodily harm during an abusive tirade at a town of Hixton residence Jan. 17.
According to the criminal complaint, an intoxicated Ben Colton Paprocki got into an argument with a woman and began throwing things inside the residence. She said the argument started after Paprocki began flipping lights on and off inside the house in an attempt to annoy her. After she asked him to stop, he responded with loud and vulgar language. He then allegedly kicked a baby gate across the room and damaged some wood trim.
The woman said Paprocki became enraged after she told him she would call police. She said Paprocki told her that the residence would be “filled with blood” when police arrived. He then left the residence and returned a short time later before leaving again.
Paprocki was charged with felony intimidation of a victim and misdemeanor disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property. He also has a bond condition that prohibits him from consuming alcohol, which triggered a bail jumping charge. He had an initial court appearance Feb. 5.
