Things that drunkards do are sometimes heinous and outrageous. Such was the case when the Racine Police Department responded to a report of an intoxicated man pointing a gun at a female caller's dog.
The dramatic incident unfolded on Tuesday in the 2400 block of Spring Street. Reports released by the victim revealed that Steven Pohlabel pointed a gun at her and her dog after consuming approximately a half gallon of Fireball Whiskey.
As if that was not enough, Pohlabel allegedly threatened to kill the victim as well. According to the victim, Pohlabel is also affiliated with the mafia and would "definitely fight" if confronted. The officers managed to arrest Pohlabel without incident, they also recovered a handgun.
As the interrogation was underway, the victim told police that the fight started earlier in the day when Pohlabel asked for something to eat. The victim made hotdogs and stuffing to which Pohlabel pushed her and said, "I don't want that s***." Shortly after, the threats towards the victim and the victim's dog started.
It turned chaotic after Pohlabel said: "I am part of the Mafia, your body will disappear." Pohlabel now faces charges of Possession of a Firearm While Intoxicated, Disorderly Conduct, and First Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety.
