A Kenosha man was charged after a night out on the town evolved into making threats against a police officer.

Nyan Dailey, 32, of Kenosha, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney‘s Office with making a threat against a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer, and disorderly conduct. If convicted on all three counts, Dailey faces up to 7 years six months in prison and/or fined up to $21,000.

According to the criminal complaint, a Mount Pleasant Police officer was among several other squads sitting outside Club LCR, 2504 Racine St., on Saturday because a number of its patrons have a history of being disorderly during closing time. That night, officers noted people blocking traffic on Racine St., people riding on top of cars, and yelling.

While the officer was in his car, Dailey yelled profanities at police and his speech was protected until he threatened to kill the police officer, then made gestures with his fingers like he was going to shoot the officer. Doing this twice, Dailey told the officer while standing in the middle of the street: “I’m going to (expletive) kill you cop. Bam! Bam! Bam!”

The officer called for back-up and Dailey was taken into police custody. Not following orders, the two officers arrested Dailey and took him to jail. While en route Daily kept asking the officer if he was Hebrew like him, asking why he “didn’t go back to Europe,” cursing at the officers, and telling the officer about the “illegality of being a white police officer.”
