A Luxemburg man found out it can be expensive protesting the presence of picketers at a Door County Republican Party event. Patrick Markham was charged with disorderly conduct after revving the engine of his truck and spewing diesel exhaust fumes at a group picketing at the annual Republican Party Lincoln Day dinner in Sturgeon Bay April 7. Judy Brodd of Sister Bay was among the protestors. She says Markham showed no remorse for his actions.
Markham was found guilty during a bench trial Friday in Door County Circuit Court. He was ordered to pay $318.45 in fines and witness fees.
