The accused is 53-year-old William Goetsch. He faces a single disorderly conduct charge for an incident that occurred on Monday, February 16th.

A criminal complaint says Sheboygan police were dispatched to the Health and Human Services building on North 8th Street on Monday, where they spoke with an employee who reported Goetsch was in their office. Staff members were apparently trying to explain to Goetsch that he was going to be moved from his apartment, and he would have to find another place to live.

The HHS employee told police Goetsch became very angry and left the office — passing the receptionist on his way out.

That receptionist told police he made a statement that he was going to blow up the place, and that everyone would be out of jobs.

Police say the threat created a disturbance at the HHS Department as employees became fearful.

    Someone has to test the drinking water in Sheboygan. The news that comes out of Sheboygan is almost unbelievable! There has to be an attraction of some sort for wack jobs in that area. I WILL GLADLY bypass Sheboygan at all cost.

    Agreed Landlord. They have a large percentage of whackjobs there based on overall population. Stick to that old adage when you girlfriend asks you to kiss her where it stinks. No honey, we are not traveling to sheboygan to kiss as there are far too many whackjobs residing there!!
