MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man who is accused of attacking a county lawyer last Monday faces a charge of substantial battery.
Robert E. Baker made a court appearance Friday.
The 59-year-old Baker was in the courtroom last Monday trying to reopen a civil case. Witnesses say he became angry when he was told that case wouldn’t be reopened.
Outside the courtroom, Baker allegedly punched a lawyer for the Corporation Counsel Office at least two times and hit him with a metal clipboard.
Mark Grady needed a stitch to close a facial cut. Baker’s attorney says his client has apologized.
He returns to court August 20th.
