A 22-year-old Caledonia man is facing charges after he allegedly kicked in the door of his own house, and then ran from police officers with two syringes in his pocket.
Terry L. Davis Jr. was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Tuesday with one count of felony bail jumping, one count of criminal damage to property, one count of disorderly conduct domestic abuse, one count of obstructing an officer and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia. If convicted, he faces up to nearly eight years in prison and $31,500 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
At 2:18 p.m. Friday, Caledonia police were called to a residence in the 10200 block of Root River Drive after someone reported a man entering a home. Officers arrived at the scene and found Davis fleeing from the scene from a detached garage.
Officers began looking for Davis and eventually found him walking in the 10200 block of Caddy Lane. When an officer told him to stop, Davis took off fleeing, but was eventually caught and held at gunpoint.
Officers searched Davis and found $499 and two syringes in his pocket. He said the money was for rent and said the syringes belonged to his wife.
A woman at the house said she’s Davis’ fiancée and they had been fighting before Davis ended up kicking in the door of the house. The woman said she didn’t call the cops, saying it must have been her daughter.
He’s currently being held in Racine County Jail on $1,500 bail.
