Probation for ear-biter, has already served 169 days in jail
An Antigo man arrested after he bit off a portion of another man’s ear during a tussle at a downtown tavern in March will be given credit for the five-plus months he has served in custody as part of an agreement reached this week in Langlade County Circuit Court.
James Pendleton, 27, of 234 Superior St. has already spent 169 days in jail for the fight which also left his combatant with a broken tooth.
Judge John Rhode placed Pendleton on probation for two years and ordered him to pay costs of the court action plus restitution in an amount yet to be determined.
The ruling came after Pendleton pleaded guilty to an amended count of battery along with counts of disorderly conduct and bail jumping. He was originally at risk for prison on a felony count of mayhem.
Several additional charges, some linked to the fight and others stemming from disputes with a female acquaintance, were dismissed as part of the plea agreement.
As condition of supervision, Pendleton must undergo an alcohol and drug assessment and follow through with any recommended treatment.
It was a busy week for courtroom staff.

View from window leads to three arrests
Three people were arrested on drug charges Saturday when a deputy visiting a town of Polar home witnessed the group smoking from a glass pipe.
He spotted the activity while looking through a window while at the home to serve a civil process paper and speak with one of the occupants about a current investigation.
Additional deputies were called to assist in a search of the residence. Five firearms and drug paraphernalia including digital scales were removed from the residence. Also taken was a metal key chain which held a small amount of suspected methamphetamine.
Those arrested included a 33-year-old man for felony bail jumping, being a felon in possession of a firearm and possession of paraphernalia. Two women, ages 54 and 30, were also arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.
In an unrelated case, two people were arrested when sheriff’s deputies were asked to check the welfare of an 19-year-old woman residing at a Highway F residence. She was okay but three suspected marijuana pipes were found within the home.
A male companion, age 47, was also at the residence and a background check revealed he was wanted on an outstanding warrant.More
