"Racine police say a 29-year-old man is facing battery charges after
he punched his neighbor in the face after she asked him to turn down his
Sparkman, of Racine, was charged Monday in Racine County Circuit Court
with one felony count of substantial battery and one misdemeanor count
of disorderly conduct. If he’s convicted of all charges, Sparkman faces
up to three years, nine months in prison and/or up to $11,000 in fines.
Because he is considered a repeat offender, he could get extra time
tacked onto any sentence he might receive.
"According to the criminal complaint, police were called June 21 to a
home in the 1000 block of Washington Avenue for a report of an assault.
When officers arrived, a woman told them she went upstairs to ask the
residents there to turn down their music. Sparkman 'lost it' and punched
her in the face.
"Police say a another man told them he did not witness the attack, but
he heard the woman crying and screaming for help so he went upstairs.
The woman was on the floor crying and bleeding from her mouth, and
Sparkman admitted to hitting her.
"The woman received 20 stitches inside and outside her mouth and suffered a broken jaw, the complaint reads.
"Sparkman remains in the Racine County Jail on a $5,000 cash bond. He will next be in court July 7 for his preliminary hearing."
