A Caledonia man was charged with drug charges after he went on a cocaine binge that lasted for weeks and threatened a woman that was with him, according to a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

The 40-year-old man was charged with possession of cocaine (second offense) and disorderly conduct-domestic abuse on Monday, June 15. If convicted, the man faces up to four years, one month in prison and/or fined up to $11,000.

According to the criminal complaint, the Caledonia Police Department responded to a residence in the 3800 block of North Green Bay Road for a report of a man on drugs and “trashing the residence.” After his arrest, the man told police that he chased a man out of his room, but it was too dark to see the person. Then later, he told officers the person could have been female and that the person left through a window.

The man told police he never yelled at the woman, but he sometimes “get high on drugs or very drunk, then drives his Hummer around” to Pick & Save or the gas station, according to the criminal complaint.

A woman locked herself in the bathroom during the incident. She told police that the man told her he was being watched by the government and he threatened to shoot people. However, she did not see that he had a gun.

Police later found a .357 pellet gun, which looked like an actual gun. The woman told police that the man had used cocaine for weeks and that he was “delusional.” Officers found empty baggies with white powdery residue and a second bag that had a significant amount of cocaine in it. They also found money. The woman told police that if they had been over to the residence a few days earlier, they “could’ve scraped them right off his face. He looked like Scarface.”
