Details

A woman says she was threatened by a man wielding a baseball bat following a Sunday night crash at the corner of S. Park St. and W. Washington Ave. The 34-year old Theresa, Wisconsin resident said she rear-ended a car, and that its angry driver got out. She says he was yelling as he approached her vehicle, while swinging a baseball bat. She called 911 and he got back in his car. The man said he did raise his voice and cuss at the woman, but he says he did not arm himself with the bat that officers found in his car. He said he had stopped on S.
