Greenfield officer resigns as part of plea in excessive force case

Nov. 20, 2013 3:54 p.m. | A Greenfield police officer has resigned as part of a plea agreement to resolve criminal charges filed against him for throwing a woman violently into a jail cell.

Thomas Roszak, 30, was scheduled to enter a plea to a lesser charge and be sentenced Wednesday, but the case was reset to Nov. 27 because of an ongoing jury trial before Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Glenn Yamahiro.

Roszak was charged in September with misconduct in office, a felony, in relation to the July 27 incident, but is now expected to plead to a misdemeanor charge.

Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt suspended Roszak after the incident, and he resigned from the department Nov. 1, Wentlandt said.

Amanda Luke, 30, of Oak Creek, had been arrested on charges of driving while revoked, and with a prohibited blood alcohol concentration and fleeing an officer. According to the complaint against Roszak, he had removed Luke from a holding cell for booking, but when he ordered her to return to the cell she placed her hands on his chest and addressed him with a vulgarity.
