Juneau County Sheriff's deputies have arrested a 46-year-old Necedah man for making wild threats against law enforcement officers.

Kurtis Pankow is accused of calling 9-1-1 and telling the dispatcher he wanted to kill as many police officers as he could. Shortly after that call, a woman called 9-1-1 and said Pankow was suicidal. When deputies arrived he reportedly put his hands in the air and started yelling and walking quickly toward them. He initially refused verbal commands, but complied when tasers were pointed at him. Pankow's blood-alcohol content was measured at more than two times the legal limit.
