Two violate bond conditions, charged after alleged ‘jumping’
Two of four charged with “jumping” a person in a Lac du Flambeau parking lot have violated bond and now face new felony charges in Vilas County Circuit Court.
Jameson Thoms, 17, and Ashlynn Thomas, 17, were charged along with Jordan Thoms, 19, and Danielle Thoms, 42, all of Lac du Flambeau, with felony substantial battery as party to a crime (PTAC), and misdemeanors disorderly conduct, criminal damage to property as PTAC and resisting an officer this spring.
During an investigation regarding another matter, a Lac du Flambeau Tribal Police officer’s attention was drawn to a vehicle nearby playing loud music. Thinking the vehicle may be the persons he was searching for, the officer approached the car where he smelled THC and observed paraphernalia on persons inside.
Jameson and Ashlynn were both found to be free on bond in the open jumping case and therefore in violation of its conditions.
Ashlynn now has three additional counts of felony bail jumping and misdemeanor possession of THC and drug paraphernalia, both as party to a crime, while Jameson acquired two counts of felony bail jumping and misdemeanor possession of THC and drug paraphernalia as party to a crime as a result of the incident.
Along with the two Thoms, Kacey LaBarge, 18, Lac du Flambeau, was taken into custody on misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of THC, both as party to a crime. She was the only other person in the car.
In the jumping, the four Thoms are said to have waited for a man in a parking lot and on the roof of a business before confronting and beating him. He was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries. Several later resisted arrest, according to court records. Property damage also was sustained at the business.
