A 34-year-old man, who was bleeding when police arrived, told officers that Kroneman punched him several times in the face, DeSpain said. Kroneman also pushed a 42-year-old woman and left a 41-year-old man with injuries to his knee, elbow and hand, the victims told police.
Kroneman was outside the bars, still shouting homophobic slurs at victims, when officers arrived.
Earlier in the night, Kroneman had only been yelling at victims, some of whom are gay and had slurs directed toward them. The victims escorted Kroneman away from two bars he was disturbing, but Kroneman came back later to start a physical fight.
Kroneman was also tentatively charged with resisting/obstructing and bail-jumping. He remains in the Dane County Jail.
