LADYSMITH, Wis. (WEAU) -- A Ladysmith woman is accused of breaking into an apartment, then struggling with officers who responded to investigate.

On Tuesday, prosecutors filed several criminal charges, including a Felony Burglary charge, against Donna Lehr, 39, of Ladysmith. A criminal complaint says a man told officers Lehr broke into his apartment on 1st Street South in Ladysmith on July 26, then drove away. An officer found her on Miner Avenue east, and she started to run away. The complaint says the officer caught her, and arrested her after she tried to get away again. The tenant told officers Lehr called him while he was out of town, and said she was in his apartment. He came back to find beer, cigarettes, and child custody paperwork missing, and damage to a window screen.

The complaint goes on to say that Lehr had agreed to have no contact with the tenant and refrain from drinking as conditions of her bond in another case. A breath test showed that her blood alcohol content was reportedly .11 percent.
