Dec. 12, 2011

A Brookfield man could be cited for disorderly conduct after a heated exchange with people collecting signatures to recall Gov. Scott Walker was recorded, according to city of Brookfield police.

According to a police report:

The 51-year-old man approached two people collecting signatures in the 17000 block of Bluemound Road at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 10.

He used profane language and grabbed a camera that one of the signature collectors used to record the exchange.

The man acted as though he was going to smash the camera, but gave it back and left the scene.

The supporters contacted police and showed them the video.

The case has been forwarded to the city attorney's office for review, and the man could be cited for disorderly conduct.
