Crivitz Man Charged With Felony Battery

An attack on Jeremy Kriescher, 36, in a Village of Crivitz apartment in the early morning hours of Sunday, May 21 ended with Kriescher in the hospital and his alleged attacker, Alvin Bryce Colson, in Marinette County Jail.

Colson, 31, of 1314-2nd Ave., Crivitz, was freed on Friday, May 26 after posting $1,000 cash bond. He faces a felony charge of aggravated battery, punishable by a fine of up to $10,000 and up to six years in prison, plus two misdemeanor charges, one for criminal trespass and the other for disorderly conduct. The misdemeanor charges carry possible combined penalties of up to $11,000 in fines and 12 months in jail.

Initial appearance is set for 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 1.

At a bail hearing before Judge James Morrison on Wednesday, May 24, District Attorney Allen Brey asked for bail of $2,500. Appearing by video from Marinette County Jail, Colson said he could post $1,000 cash bond, and a friend would give him a job in construction. He told the court he had been under treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) at the Iron Mountain VA Hospital.

Colson had been a bartender at Thor's Wolverine Den in Crivitz where Kriescher, Beth Hansen and others had been guests at a birthday party Saturday afternoon and evening. Witnesses say they saw no sign of a disagreement at the bar.

Terms of bail, in addition to the $1,000 cash, included that Colson sign a waiver of extradition, have no contact with Kriescher or Hansen, not enter or be present in any establishment whose primary purpose is the sale of alcohol, comply with any and all treatments or arrangements with the VA, and contact the police department before release from jail.

At a hearing on Tuesday, May 23, Judge David Miron ruled there is probable cause to try Colson on the charges filed earlier that day by District Attorney Allen Brey.

According to reports filed by Marinette County Sheriff's Department, Deputies Elias, Haile and Parker were dispatched to the home of Hansen in the Village of Crivitz at approximately 4:20 a.m. on Sunday, for an assault complaint.

Upon arrival the officers spoke with Hansen, who told them that the defendant, an ex-boyfriend, had unlawfully entered her residence without her permission or consent. She said he had entered through a bathroom window, and began punching in the head of Kriescher, who was asleep when the attack began.

Rescue personnel were dispatched in response to the complaint and transported Kriescher to the hospital. Deputy Parker interviewed Kriescher at Bay Area Medical Center. Kriescher told the officer he had been sleeping when he awoke to the defendant punching him numerous times in the head. He said he did not know why he was being struck and did not have much of an opportunity to defend himself. He said ultimately Hansen was able to get the defendant off him and that ended the attack.

Kriescher told Parker that medical personnel told him he had fractures to the orbital socket for his right eye, his skull had been fractured, and that he would need the attention of a neurosurgeon at a different hospital.

A report filed by Deputy Haile said he met Hansen in the driveway of her home. She advised him there had been a family gathering at the Wolverine Den, and she had attended the party with a few friends. She said she used to date Colson, and the last time he stayed over was two days ago. She said Colson was bartending and there was nothing out of the ordinary throughout the night.

Kriescher, a long-time family friend of the Hansens, now lives in Peshtigo.

At bar closing, Kriescher and David Lepkowski, another long-time family friend, left the bar with her. They did not want to drive to their homes in Peshtigo, so they were going to stay at her house for the evening. When they got to her place they went to bed, Lepkowski on the couch; she in the bedroom of her daughter, who was away for the night, and Kriescher in her bed.

At about 3:30 a.m. she awoke to the sound of someone knocking on her bedroom window. She then heard a noise from the bathroom. When she got up, she saw that Colson was halfway through the bathroom window.

The report says Colson climbed into the residence through the window, and then went into the bedroom where Kriescher was sleeping. "He kept saying that he was their worst nightmare," the report states. "She was yelling at him to stop and she tried to get him to stop." She said Colson pushed her into a night stand, causing a lamp to break and making her wrist sore. He finally left through the front door.

Hansen's upstairs neighbor, Nicole VanLaanen, came down to help. VanLaanen told the officer she had been sleeping and woke up to hear Hansen yelling "Alvin," and Colson yelling back. She said she recognized Colson's voice. When she went downstairs to check on Hansen she saw Colson leaving in his work truck. Hansen was shaking and Kriescher was in her bed, not seeming to know what was going on, the report states. She helped with Kriescher and then left after things seemed to settle down. After Colson left he called Hansen and yelled at her for having another guy at her residence, the report states.

The rescue squad had already been paged and were enroute to the address when the officers arrived. Deputy Haile spoke briefly with Kriescher, and noted bruising and swelling to the right side of his face. He said Kriescher told him he had no idea what caused any of this, that he was sleeping and woke up to being assaulted." He then became nauseous and was turned over to rescue and subsequently transported to BAMC."

Haile said Kriescher did seem to be under the influence of intoxicants, and that Hansen did appear to have been consuming intoxicants but did not appear to be highly intoxicated.

The officer said the bathroom window had not been locked and could have easily been slipped open. He did not locate any prints on the window, but did see blood stains on the bedding. He took photographs of the scene and was shown a small hand mirror that was damaged in the bathroom.

Haile's report says Hansen told him "that she had no idea where any of this came from...There was no altercation or any contact between any of them the entire night that would have caused this. She said she did not give Alvin permission to break into her house and assault her."
