De Pere man who claimed excessive force during OWI arrest, fails to appear in court


APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - A 32-year-old De Pere man who filed a complaint against Outagamie County Sheriff’s deputies claiming they used excessive force was used during his drunken driving arrest in July now has a bench warrant out for his arrest. 

Josh Peterson failed to show up for court on September 10th, so a judge issued a warrant for his arrest. 

He is facing charges of OWI, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. 

Peterson refused to get out of his vehicle for about 15 minutes before he was pulled out by authorities.  He was injured during the scuffle.  An investigation ruled the deputies acted with objectively reasonable force in accordance with the Wisconsin Department of Justice and the sheriff’s policies.
