A 54-year-old Tomah man was referred to the Monroe County District Attorney for multiple charges after police responded to a May 2 altercation.

Jae Yun Song was referred for false imprisonment, disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property.

Police were called to a Berry Avenue residence, where a person said Song was attacking a woman at the residence. When police arrived, the report said a loud female scream could be heard. Police interviewed the woman, who said Song yelled at her and refused to let her leave the residence. She said she tried to escape Song’s yelling by locking herself in the bathroom. A witness told police he was fearful the woman “might die.”

The report says Song admitted to damaging a cell phone during the argument. He denied anything physical occurred or that he kept the woman inside the residence against her will.

Jeffrey Paul Peters, 29, Tomah, was referred to the district attorney for disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property after a May 5 incident.

Police responded to a Nott Street residence shortly before 9 p.m., where a caller reported that two people were fighting outside and slamming car doors. When police arrived, the vehicle was unoccupied and a door to the back porch of the residence had been kicked in.

Peters later emerged from a bedroom and admitted kicking the door and being involved in a verbal altercation. Police entered the residence and observed that the side of the stove had been kicked in and linoleum had been torn from where the stove was moved.

Peters had two sets of felony bonds from Monroe County, which triggered a bail jumping referral.
