Court Proceedings

Brown County

District Court

• Augusto A. Marquez, 19, 407 Summit Ave., Hanska, was charged with felony first-degree damage to property, gross misdemeanor damage to property, misdemeanor fourth-degree damage to property and petty misdemeanor disorderly conduct Tuesday.

According to court documents, Brown County dispatch took a 911 call on June 8 from a person who said Marquez kicked a vehicle and refused to let a female leave a residence. Deputies located the vehicle, a 1997 Mercedes, at the residence.

Marquez told a deputy he and the woman were fighting over breaking up. The alleged victim said she was trying to remove her things from the residence when Marquez convinced her to go for a drive. On a gravel road near Hanska, she said he took the keys and threw them into a corn field. She said she retrieved the keys and tried to leave but he began kicking the front fender of the vehicle. She said she feared him as he had assaulted her in the past and that was why she tried to leave him.

When they returned to the residence, Marquez allegedly began throwing some of the woman’s belongings out the door, and she decided to call 911.
