Gaige Grosskreutz is the man who pointed a gun at Kyle Rittenhouse during the Kenosha Riots. He paid dearly and lost most of his arm. We told you about his extensive criminal history. Please read this. He is not an upstanding citizen. He has been convicted of at least one felony. For some reason there are no felony convictions still on his record. They were likely expunged.

Well, Gaige just added a new charge, Second OWI. On October 6, 2020 he was arrested by West Allis police about 2:40 am for allegedly driving drunk. He refused to provide a sample for measurement.

Special Treatment? Corruption? Both?

The Milwaukee County DA Charged Grosskreutz with a civil forfeiture for refusing to take test for intoxication after arrest. Second OWIs in Wisconsin are criminal and appear on a background check. He originally had a court date scheduled for March 12, 2021. Then, sometime in December, that date was postponed at the request of the Milwaukee DA’s office. That date is now January 1, 2022, or later. We reached out to both DA’s to ask why the special treatment was given. We didn’t hear back from Graveley, leading to speculation that this was a handshake deal to help assist in the prosecution of Kyle Rittenhouse. Milwaukee Chief Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern did respond on behalf of DA Chisholm to the Kenosha County Eye. He told us that the criminal second OWI is “currently pending in our office” and “it will be handled by this office like any other similar referral. This office has had no contact with Kenosha County prosecutors about this matter”

Gaige recently initiated legal action against the City and County of Kenosha seeking $10,000,000.

  1. I hope Kyle handicapped his whackin arm.
    Or maybe he did him a favor, “the stanger”, then Gaige wouldn’t even have to sit on his hand!

  2. I think it’s a bit early to jump to conclusions. He may have just been driving with 1 hand on the steering wheel.

  3. Grosskreutz is a menace to society.
    He has documented anger issues and holds a ccw permit making this pos all the more dangerous to the general public.

  4. Yeah they’ll handle it like any other OWI, when they get around too it AFTER Kyle’s trial. They wouldn’t want Kyle’s defense attorney to be able to try and use the OWI conviction as evidence of Grosskreutz’ problems with substance abuse. Jurors might wonder if Grosskreutz was impaired on the night that he decided to attack an armed citizen.

  5. The hospital records may be able to determine if Grosskreutz was “under the influence” when part of his arm was blown away. Any one want to do a public records request to determine if the D.A.’s office attempted to seek such evidence?

  6. I watched all the Gaige Grosskreutz testimony, and the defense never brought up his extensive rap sheet, or the rap sheets for Rosenbaum or Huber, which makes no sense. Also can’t understand they wouldn’t bring up Grosskreutz’s second DUI which was less than 2 months after the shooting, and play the footage to jurors to show his non compliance to police which is a 180 degree difference than how Kyle Rittenhouse obeys police orders.

    1. Wisconsin law extensively limits the criminal history from being introduced. Usually only crimes of deceit and recent crimes of deceit. His second DUI was just dismissed by a Democratic judge so the defense couldn’t bring it up. Attorneys usually can bring up pending cases either way.
