Arrests for Sunday Disturbances
The Appleton Police Department has arrested three (3) people for their involvement in a series of disturbances occurring during the early morning hours of February 18, 2018. Additional arrests are anticipated.
Investigators have determined the events began inside of Jack’s Apple Pub. Individuals argued over a game of pool. One person slapped another person, setting off a chain of escalating confrontations; which involved several failed attempts to fire weapons and an eventual shooting outside of Grumpy’s Pub.
On Monday, February 19, 2018, the Appleton Police Department executed several search warrants in Appleton and Menasha. We also located several people actively involved in the disturbances. Three arrests were made on Monday. Investigators are continuing their investigation by attempting to identify other involved persons and witnesses. Additional charges and additional arrests of individuals involved in the disturbances are expected.
