A 61-year-old Wauwatosa man is facing vandalism charges after he allegedly broke the window of a commercial building in East Tosa early Wednesday morning.
According to the Wauwatosa police report:
A neighbor heard loud banging noises followed by glass breaking in the 6300 block of West North Avenue at 1:53 a.m.
When officers arrived they saw Villa Johnson at the door. He had cuts on his arms and there was blood on the broken glass. He told officers his grandmother lived in the building but could not provide her name or contact information.
Johnson lives in East Tosa, where there have been several businesses broken into since early July. He was intoxicated and said he last recalled gambling and drinking bourbon at Potawatomi Casino. He further told police that he's a diabetic and is not supposed to drink alcohol.
Police pushed for a burglary charge, but the district attorney charged Johnson with one count of misdemeanor vandalism.
