From the Oconomowoc Police Blotter:

A man was issued a citation for tobacco possession on school grounds and trespassing on Monday, March 12. An officer was outside of Oconomowoc High School shortly after school had let out and observed a man walking his dog and smoking a cigar on the sidewalk towards the buses.

The officer told him he couldn’t be walking his dog there or smoking. The man responded that he served in the Marine Corps and that they would do “Whatever the [expl...etive] we want.” When asked for his name, he responded with “Alfonso Juan Cortez. Conquerer of the Incas.” The man was later identified not as “Alfonso Juan Cortez, Conquerer of the Incas,” but instead as Todd, a man from Nebraska. After attempting to walk away from the officer, Todd was placed in handcuffs until other units arrived. He was let go after being issued the citation.
