A Camp Douglas man faces criminal charges after police say he attacked a 15 year old girl.
Carlos Patzan, 36, is charged with physical abuse of a child, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer. He faces up to six years imprisonment for the first charge.
According to the criminal complaint:
A Mauston Police Officer received a report July 11 of a violent incident taking place at the Kwik Trip on Gateway Avenue. The Officer was informed an adult male was “punching a 15-year-old female.”
Upon arriving at the Kwik Trip, an adult male told the Officer “he keeps punching (her) in the face.”
The Officer made contact with the male suspect, identified as Patzan, seating in the right passenger seat of a truck at the Kwik Trip. The Officer drew his taser and ordered Patzan to exit the vehicle and get on the ground.
Patzan did not comply. “You don’t even know the story, what the (expletive) are you talking about,” Patzan replied.
After repeatedly telling Patzan to get on the ground, the Officer informed Patzan he would use the taser if he continued to be uncooperative. Patzan replied “go ahead homie.”
The officer deployed his taser, striking Patzan in the chest. Patzan then “grabbed the wires of the Taser cartridge and attempted to break them.”
Patzan was eventually placed in handcuffs with the help of a Juneau County Deputy.
When asked what took place to make Patzan become violent, an individual in the vehicle stated, “He got intoxicated so (the 15-year-old) didn’t want to let him out and I didn’t want to let him out and he got upset because he wanted to steal something. And that was it.”
The 15-year-old female requested an ice pack for her face.
Officers took photographs of the 15-year-old’s face where she said Patzan hit her.
Patzan consented to a Preliminary Breath Test. He blew a .207 blood alcohol concentration.
“He ended up getting more worked up then got a Smirnoff bottle from I don’t know (where) and chugged it down,” the 15-year-old female stated. “Then he kept on trying to get out.”
Patzan is currently in the Juneau County Jail. His pre-trial conference is scheduled for Aug. 9 at the Juneau County Justice Center.
