Student Faces Felony Charges Because Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Police say a student was living with a girl for the past year, but she wanted him out, so he allegedly pushed her.

A 17-year-old J.I. Case High School student is facing felony charges after he allegedly pushed another student during a lunch period.

Johnnie R. Lampkin was charged in Racine County Circuit Court Tuesday with one count of disorderly conduct and two counts of felony bail jumping. If convicted, he faces up to 12 years in prison and $21,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint, at 11:30 a.m. Monday, a Mount Pleasant police officer was supervising a lunch period when a girl got up, walked over to Lampkin and told him he needed to get his clothes out of her house. He reportedly got up and pushed her to the ground.

Lampkin told the officer he used to date the girl and had been staying at the girl’s house for the past year because he had nowhere else to go.

He’s currently being held in Racine County Jail on $2,000 bond.

Now he has a place to go. When I was in high school, pushing someone down may have resulted in a detention. You had to floor someones books to get the gas chamber.

A felony charge for a push?
