Argument over children's behavior at R-rated film leads to arrests for disorderly conduct

July 24, 2013 3:14 p.m. | Two couples were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after an argument about children's behavior during a late-night showing at a Greenfield movie theater ended with one of the subjects deploying pepper spray.

According to a report released by Greenfield police, which was obtained this week after an open-records request by NOW Newspapers:

A 21-year-old Mukwonago woman and a 33-year-old Milwaukee woman started arguing after the Mukwonago woman complained several times that the other woman’s young children were kicking the back of her chair and making too much noise during a showing of the R-rated movie “Olympus has Fallen” at Budget Cinema, 4475 S. 108th St., at about 11 p.m. June 25.

The woman told police she turned around several times and asked the children’s mother to make them quiet down, and twice asked the woman to stop her child from kicking the back of her seat. 

After the child kicked her seat the third time, she turned around and told the children’s mother that if the child kicked her chair one more time, “We’re going to have a problem.” After that comment, the two women started bickering loudly and using profanities, according to several witnesses.

Retail development planned at former West Allis dealership

July 23, 2013 7:00 a.m. | An 8-acre West Allis site that was once a car dealership has been sold to local development firms that plan to build a retail center there.

The former Hub Chrysler property, 3007-3035 S. 108th St., was sold in April for $1.2 million to developers Robert Joseph, who operates Joseph Property Development LLC, and Robert Schmidt III, president of BoulderVenture Inc.

Joseph said he and Schmidt are creating plans to develop retail buildings on the vacant lot, where the former dealership building was demolished. He said there is already "tremendous interest" in the site from prospective tenants.

In 2010, the Sanfelippo family proposed a used-car lot, car rental business and auto repair shops at the site.

But that plan was dropped amid disagreements over site improvement conditions city officials wanted.
