Galesville man charged with threatening La Crosse County deputy's family during OWI arrest

From the What you missed this week in notable La Crosse crimes and court cases series

A Galesville man was charged Monday with a felony after he threatened the family of the La Crosse County Sheriff’s Office deputy who arrested him for drunken driving.

David Bee Lor, 25, Galesville, was charged with threat to a family member of a law enforcement officer, obstructing an officer, disorderly conduct and second-offense operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated in La Crosse County Circuit Court.

Lor crashed his car about 11 p.m. Saturday and a sheriff’s deputy responded to the scene, according to the complaint. The deputy suspected Lor had been drinking and Lor admitted to being drunk; however, the deputy was unable to conduct field sobriety tests because of Lor’s belligerence, according to the report.

Lor told the deputy, “If I wanted to blow your brains out, I would have,” and “Once I get out, trust me, your family gonna listen, (expletive),” as well as other threats against the deputy’s family, according to the complaint.

Lor was previously convicted of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated in 2014.

Lor’s attorney requested a signature bond, noting Lor’s lack of criminal history; however, that request was denied by Judge Gloria Doyle

“Your conduct on this evening gives me concern for the community,” Doyle said.

She ordered a $400 cash bond and prohibited him from having contact with the deputy or the deputy’s family. If Lor posts bond, he will be prohibited from drinking alcohol and required to submit to alcohol testing by Justice Support Services.
