Smashed Window in Downtown Waukesha Leads to Charges

A Waukesha man is facing a year in jail after breaking a window in downtown Waukesha and hiding out at a church, according to a criminal complaint.

Eric M. Boyce, 37, was charged with criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

According to the complaint:

Boyce smashed out the window at Magellan’s and then fled the scene on Oct. 18. A bartender told police Boyce was asked to leave the bar after he was being obnoxious, rubbing female patrons' backs without their permission.

Boyce was found in a vestibule of a church on Wisconsin Avenue. Officers noted he was unsteady on his feet and his speech was slurred. His preliminary breath test showed he had a .21 percent blood alcohol concentration.

Boyce told police he was angry because he just ordered a beer and pizza when he was asked to leave. When he left, he told police, he slammed the door, and the glass “probably” broke.
