Off-duty officer attacked at bar

Posted: Updated:

A Wisconsin man has been arrested, accused of attacking an off-duty officer because he hates law enforcement.

The Fennimore Police Department says Dakota Dempsey went up to the officer in a bar on Saturday. Police say Dempsey claimed he was upset about being ticketed for egging cars several years ago. He then allegedly punched the officer several times in the head before being stopped by the officer and other people inside the bar.

Police say Dempsey told them he felt the need to punch the officer.

The officer was not seriously hurt.

Dempsey, from Boscobel, was arrested for battery to a police officer.
