WI: Charges Dropped in Defensive use of Knife Case

 Prosecutors recently dropped charges against 37-year-old Richard J. West after it was determined he rightfully defended himself against 44-year-old David D. Peterson with a small pocket knife at Whispering Pines Tavern.

“While the (surveillance) video didn’t show everything, it did support the eyewitness accounts that after the initial conflict was over, the alleged victim jumped in, and it was then that Mr. West wound up on his back on the floor getting the crap kicked out of him,” said Jackson County District Attorney Gerald Fox, who filed the original charges.
