NFDL Man Charged For Threatening Officer With Ax


The North Fond du Lac man who allegedly threatened a police officer with an ax late last month made his initial court appearance this week on charges stemming from the incident. Twenty-three-year-old Thomas Owens was charged with 2nd degree recklessly endangering safety, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct. According to North Fond du Lac Police they got a call about a man carrying an ax and saying someone had killed people inside his apartment complex. When Officer Jacob Eagan confronted the man along with Sheriff’s deputies Owens allegedly raised the ax as if to throw it. With guns pointed at him he lowered it and ran, but Eagan quickly caught up and pointed a Taser at him ordering him to the ground. Owens has since apologized to the officer. He hadn’t slept for days when the incident occurred. Fond du Lac County Judge Peter Grimm set a $5,000 cash bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 18th.
