Lafayette County


• Jonathan Perry Blaser, 22, Shullsburg, was charged Monday, Oct. 8, with three Class H felony counts of committing battery as a prisoner and misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and resisting/obstructing an officer. The charges stem from an incident Sept. 18 at the Lafayette County Jail. Court records indicate jail deputies asked Blaser to give them the clothing he was using to clog his cell toilet, and when he mouthed off and disobeyed, they tasered him and put him in a restraint chair. He reportedly kneed an officer in the chin and left two other officers with injuries, too. Blaser was also charged the same day with a misdemeanor count of kicking and damaging his cell door. A deputy noted in his report that Blaser's aggressive behavior is an ongoing problem and Blaser explains it by saying he has "nothing to lose" and "that breaking things and causing disruptions in the jail help him sleep at night."

• Nicole L. White, 24, Lancaster, was charged Thursday, Oct. 11, with two Class H felony counts of child abuse.
