Tahoe altercation leads to burglary charge Thursday
A Carson City man was taken into custody on Thursday morning after an altercation at a home in Roundhill.
Stephen K. Milaeger, 35, was booked on charges of burglary, battery, preventing someone from reporting a crime, false imprisonment and trespassing.
According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were called at 8:45 a.m. on a report that Milaeger was trying to break into a home.
When they arrived, they found a man had Milaeger restrained at the bottom of the stairs.
According to the report, the man said he was warned that Milaeger was in town and he was locking doors and windows when he turned up.
Milaeger allegedly broke a window to get in and forced his way in while the other man was trying to call authorities. He allegedly took the house phone and the man’s cell phone away from him. Milaeger allegedly had the man in a wrestling lock while he punched him in the face, struggling for 20-30 minutes before he got the upper hand.
Milaeger will face proceedings in Tahoe Township Justice Court.
