A 40-year-old Fall Creek man was referred to the Monroe County District Attorney after he allegedly attempted to enter a Tomah residence without the occupant’s permission Feb. 2.

Police were called to a Clark Street residence, where a man later identified as Rocky Charles Stiehl was prowling near a window and then tried to enter the residence through the front door. The caller said Stiehl was having difficulty standing and appeared intoxicated.

The report says Stiehl attempted to enter another nearby residence and was later found hiding behind a vehicle with his head resting on the snow. He initially didn’t respond to police instructions but was arrested without incident.

Stiehl was referred for disorderly conduct. He also had a bond condition from Eau Claire County which prohibits him from consuming alcohol, which triggered a bail jumping referral.
