A Kenosha man was a no-show today for his first court appearance. Court Commissioner Larry Keating issued a $500 warrant for the arrest of 59-year-old Terry Feest. Feest has a history of violence and was arrested on November 29, 2022, after a short standoff with police, while naked from the waist down and a gun in his hands. On March 28, 2023, he was charged only with disorderly conduct, four months after the arrest.
According to the criminal complaint:
A woman called 9-1-1 just after midnight on November 29, 2022. She told police that a man just threatened to kill her. The woman went outside to check on a man who was laying on the horn for several minutes. When she approached the vehicle he asked her if she “wanted to die.” The woman said “no” and the man said back, that she should go inside or he will kill her. The man then took off at a high rate of speed and hit a neighbor’s mailbox. The woman captured the man driving back towards her and some neighbors. Police began to search for the vehicle and some other neighbors outside pointed out Terry Feest’s house. The KPD officer felt the hood of the car and indicated it had recently been running. There was a small scratch on the on the passenger side mirror.
Officers then knocked on Feest’s door and yelled “POLICE.” Feest finally came to the door, armed with a handgun and exposed penis. Officers took cover behind the garage and ordered Feest to drop the weapon (gun). Eventually, Feest dropped the gun and showed his hands to police. He refused to come outside and shut the door. Kenosha Police Officers then were deciding on how to proceed. Feest then exited the home and surrendered. Feest denied driving the car in the last couple of hours, but a nearby ring doorbell contradicted this statement.
While enroute to the jail, Feest told a KPD officer “I fucking hate the police” and called the officer an “asshole” and “motherfucker.” Feest was photographed and fingerprinted. The officer escorted Feest back to his squad car to take him home. Feest told the officer “you obviously don’t know me.” The officer took that as a threat. Feest then smiled, shook his head, and laughed at the officer. Feest then gave the officer the “1000 yard stare” and appeared to want to fight him. His face appeared to have tightened up and his teeth were clenched. The officer ordered Feest into the car, but Feest stopped short, and said “have you ever met a real Navy Seal?” This was an apparent attempt to intimidate the officer.
The sole count against Feest is a misdemeanor. This isn’t his first DC arrest. Feest was accused of pushing a private investigator when he was being served civil papers on October 14, 2019. Feest was apparently upset because a local gumshoe used a ruse to get him to exit his house and accept service. According to the police report, a Pleasant Prairie Police Officer could detect the odor of intoxicants emitting from Mr. Feest’s breath. Upon viewing the body cam footage, Mr. Feest repeatedly refused to answer the officer’s inquiry as to if he pushed the P.I. The Kenosha DA’s office dismissed the charge as part of a plea deal.
According to court records, the state alleged that Mr. Feest has acted similarly to two other men who attempted to served him in the past. One was alleged to be hit by Feest. Also, it is alleged that Mr. Feest threatened a City of Kenosha weed and grass inspector with a baseball bat after being given a warning for tall grass and weeds. According to the inspector, he said “fuck off” and “if you come on my property I’ll beat the fuck out of you!”
After our initial report, Feest emailed this author calling him a “cunt” and issued other insults. Feest will be in court as soon as he is arrested.
