A 26-year-old Racine man was back behind bars Thursday after officials with Zimmerman Consulting, Inc. reported a failed drug test to the court.

Shane Trentadue was out on bond after being charged in January with a single felony count of suffocation and strangulation, domestic abuse assessments and one misdemeanor count each of battery, domestic abuse and disorderly conduct, domestic abuse; and nine counts of misdemeanor theft. As a condition of his bond, Trentadue was ordered to submit to random drug testing as well as after each court appearance. He was also not to consume or possess any controlled substances.

According to the criminal complaint, ZCI personnel met with Trentadue on January 10, and his urine test was negative for controlled substances. The defendant appeared in court again on April 14 for a status conference and reported to ZCI for another drug test. Those results indicated Trentadue was using opiates, cocaine, benzodiazepines, amphetamines, and marijuana.

A warrant was issued for Trentadue’s arrest, and he was back in custody Wednesday. He made his initial appearance Thursday and was assigned a $5,000 cash bond with the same conditions about not consuming or possessing controlled substances and submitting to drug screens after each court appearance as well as randomly.

Trentadue is scheduled for a plea hearing June 23 for the January charges. He will next be in court for the felony bail jumping on May 15 for his preliminary hearing. Trentadue remained in the Racine County Jail Thursday night, according to online court records.
