Violence spree leads to arrests (05/22/2013)
By Chris Rogers
Violence spree leads

A spree of violence and debauchery led to two arrests for third-degree domestic assault, fifth-degree domestic assault, and third-degree riot. Ryan Thomas Eisenmenger, 23, of Alma, Wis., and Shane Ian Miller, 28, of Fountain City, Wis., were each arrested by the Winona Police Department and referred for the assault and rioting charges after they and three other males were allegedly involved in two separate fights at 1:07 a.m. on Sunday morning.

In the first alleged assault, an employee of Mulligan’s Bar near Third and Franklin streets exited the rear door of the bar and noticed Miller urinating in the alley. The employee said he yelled at Miller, at which point Miller began urinating on the employee. Then the employee reported pushing Miller and a fight broke out. The employee said he was attacked by five men.

Shortly thereafter, the quintet reportedly began accosting a couple on the street, yelling profanity and making lewd comments towards the female half of the couple. Witnesses said the woman’s male companion told the five males to leave her alone, at which point a fight allegedly broke out. Officers said the male in the couple had one of his teeth knocked out. Based on reports from witnesses, officer identified Miller and Eisenmenger as suspects in the assaults.

Officers reported that Miller ran towards a victim who was talking to a police officer at his squad car, screaming that he would kill the victim. Miller also reportedly told an officer at the Law Enforcement Center that he was going to shoot the officer with a gun when he got out of jail. The officer asked if that was a threat, to which Miller reportedly said, “No, it’s a promise.”

Under state criminal statutes, a riot is defined as a group of three or more acting or threatening to act violently. Deputy Police Chief Tom Williams said he had seen such a referral for rioting only twice in his career with the Winona Police Department.
