RACINE, WI – A Milwaukee man was charged after he caused a disturbance and tried to run from the police while high on ecstasy, according to court documents.

Michael Hubbard, 29, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with possession of narcotic drugs, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer. If convicted of all charges,  Hubbard faces up to 13 years six months in prison and/or fines up to $21,000.

According to the criminal complaint,  officers with the Racine Police Department responded to a report of a loud disturbance. When they arrived, the officer saw a group of people and one man. Hubbard closed the door and went inside. But a woman told them she lived there and could let them inside.

As the officers attempted to arrest Hubbard, he resisted despite them ordering him to stop resisting. Eventually, the officer deployed his Taser. But this was not effective in gaining Hubbard’s compliance. He pulled away and tried to run. Another officer used his Taser on Hubbard and he was able to control him. As the officers were doing that Hubbard urinated on the officer and another officer scuffed his elbows during the altercation.

He told police that he tried to run away because he had a warrant for fleeing and eluding out of Milwaukee County.

“Hubbard also stated he was high on ecstasy,” the complaint reads.

When police searched him, they found a homemade ecstasy pill.
