On Monday, Feb. 23, at approximately 6:20 p.m., the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department received a report from a third party of a requested welfare check at 106 N. Main St. in the village of Eastman.

Deputies arrived on scene and made contact with two individuals inside of the residence. It was requested that Pierre D. Gardner, 31, Eastman, be removed from the residence due to safety concerns. Deputies attempted to speak with Gardner about where he could stay for the night or if they could assist him to anywhere.

Gardner became verbally aggressive and started to threaten deputies. Gardner then started to yell at the other individual in the residence and became loud and aggressive. Gardner would not listen to deputies’ commands to calm down. The other individual was advised to go outside of the residence. At this time, Gardner chased the other individual outside of the residence and ignored commands from deputies to stop.

Gardner got within inches of the other individual and started yelling in their face. At this time deputies pulled Gardner away and attempted to restrain him in an attempt to control the situation and to protect the other individual from harm.

Gardner resisted the deputies and ignored their commands. The deputies were able to gain control of Gardner with the assistance of a helpful citizen. Gardner was removed from the area and transported to the Crawford County Jail. During the apprehension, one deputy was struck in the face by Gardner.

Assisting the Crawford County Sheriff’s Department during transport was the Prairie du Chien Police Department.
