Columbia County Circuit Court in Portage

Columbia County Circuit Court

What should have been a two-day trial over accusations of reckless endangerment with a firearm ended in a mistrial with the realization that the defendant’s attorney had not requested “discovery” or read police reports from the incident.

Michael Cline, 45, of Lodi, faces three counts of second-degree reckless endangerment with a weapon, three counts of pointing a firearm at another, possession of a firearm while intoxicated, and two counts of disorderly conduct with use of a dangerous weapon.
