Arrest under § 968.075 doesn’t preclude issuance of citation under municipal ordinance

City of Lancaster v. Todd A. Chojnowski & Eric T. Chojnowski, 2013AP1593 & 2013AP1594, District 4, 2/6/14; court of appeals decision (1-judge; ineligible for publication); case activity: 2013AP1593; 2013AP1594

Arrest under § 968.075, the mandatory arrest law for domestic abuse offenses, doesn’t preclude a charge under city disorderly conduct statute. While § 968.085(8) prohibits the issuance of a “citation” to a person arrested under § 968.075, that relates to issuance of a citation to appear in lieu of an arrest for a criminal charge, § 968.085(1), and thus doesn’t apply to citations for a civil forfeiture.
