20-year-old facing 12 charges following arrest at Ashland Arby’s

ASHLAND, WI — A 20-year-old is facing 12 charges, nine of which are felonies, after being arrested at an Ashland Arby’s restaurant on New Year’s Day.

According to court documents, Rogelio Fuentez, of Milwaukee, has been charged with possession of multiple drugs, attempted battery or threat to a law enforcement officer, and bail jumping, among other charges.

According to police, officers were called to the restaurant shortly before 9 p.m. for a report of a man in the restaurant’s drive-through who had allegedly pointed a gun at another car.

Police say Fuentez began taking off his clothes and pulling his pants down, claiming he was unarmed.

After speaking with another passenger in the vehicle, officials say Fuentez then stood up and began running around the building while officers chased him.

Fuentez allegedly spat on the officers who responded to the call and told them to quote “Get AIDS” before he was arrested and taken to jail, where officials said he threatened officers.

Officers and jail staff found the drugs hidden in the man’s socks, and police say a Glock 9mm gun was found about 10 feet from where the man was arrested.

Additional drugs were also found in a duffle bag belonging to the man arrested, as well as several unused 9mm rounds, and two spent rounds.

He is being held on a $2,500 cash bail.
