Bar fight in Cudahy over Walker recall petition

CUDAHY - Politics turned to punches in Cudahy this past weekend.  Now five people are facing a variety of citations.

According to a police report Newsradio 620 WTMJ obtained, Darrell and Michelle Jaskulski walked in to Rollie's Tap Tavern on South Packard Avenue in Cudahy late Saturday night.

The bar's owner, Toni Eder, was tending bar, and asked the couple to sign a petition to recall Governor Walker.

The couple said they are Gov. Walker supporters, and refused to sign the petition.  At this point the accounts of the incident diverge.

The Jaskulskis claim that Eder started yelling at them and called them scum of the earth before ordering them to leave the bar.

Eder, however, claims the Jaskulskis became belligerent when they were asked to sign the recall petition and said they wouldn't leave. Eder then asked the other people in the bar if they wanted the Jaskulskis to leave, and they said they did.

At some point another man, Brian Wachowiak, who was sitting nearby, told the couple that they needed to leave.  Darrell Jaskulski approached Wachowiak and a fight started.

Michelle Jaskulski ran over and got into a fight with Wachowiak's girlfriend Michelle Wirth.  Police arrived a short time later and broke it up.

All four people involved suffered minor injuries but declined medical attention.

Police report that everyone involved in the case was intoxicated.

Now Michelle Jaskulski, Michelle Wirth, and Brian Wachowiak have been cited for battery and disorderly conduct, Darrell Jaskulski is cited for disorderly conduct, and the bar's owner, Toni Eder has been cited for disorderly conduct and smoking in a tavern.

None of them has commented on this police report to Newsradio 620 WTMJ.
