Battle over dirty house ends when Fort McCoy man bops roommate with beer bottle

Treyton Stewart Wimmer

A Fort McCoy man is accused of hitting another man in the head twice with an empty beer bottle after the victim asked him to clean the house.

Treyton Stewart Wimmer, 19, was charged with aggravated domestic battery with a deadly weapon after the incident, which happened last Monday afternoon at the house he shares with the victim on NE 203rd Place, a Marion County Sheriff’s Office report states.

A sheriff’s deputy encountered Wimmer at a convenience store before arriving at the incident scene. He asked Wimmer if he had just gotten into a fight with the victim and Wimmer said yes. Wimmer was handcuffed and detained pending further investigation.

The victim said the two were arguing about the house being dirty and he asked Wimmer to clean it. Wimmer allegedly pushed him back into the room and slapped him in the face, then pushed him against the bed, placed him in a headlock and punched him in the ribs before hitting him in the head twice with the bottle, the report says, adding that Wimmer then left the residence.

The deputy felt two knots on the victim’s head that were consistent with him being struck by a bottle. The victim provided a sworn written statement and an empty beer bottle.

Wimmer who told the deputy he was being detained illegally, was arrested and taken to the Marion County Jail, where he was released early Wednesday on $2,500 bond. He’s due in Marion County Court on Feb. 12.
