Incident Report: Madison, WI

 

Dane County authorities say a man claiming to be a sheriff’s deputy and immigration officer assaulted a Latino man in Marshall in January, leading to three hate crime charges.
A criminal complaint says Jon Holte, 59, was intoxicated when he put a “Dane County Special Deputy” badge on his belt and knocked on the door of a home in Marshall where several Latino people live in the early afternoon of January 30. According to the complaint, he pushed past the man who answered the door and announced he was with “immigration” and “I’m here because of all the illegals living here.”
