A Dubuque couple is facing several charges after an altercation with a southwest Wisconsin police officer. Potosi, Wisconsin police officer David Necollins stopped a vehicle early Sunday for driving left of the center line. Necollins says when he tried to arrest the driver of the car, 38-year-old Desire Gremmell of Dubuque, for O-W-I, she resisted and tried to hit him. The officer says when he tried to handcuff Desire, her husband, 44-year-old Joseph Gremmell got out of the car and also tried to hit him. The officer used pepper spray on both of them. The officer tried to keep Joseph away from his car and was punched in the head. A Grant County Sheriff’s deputy eventually showed up with a dog, and the two agreed to comply. The couple had a nine-year-old and six-year-old in the car at the time. Desire is being charged with O-W-I with a passenger under 16, prohibited alcohol concentration, and resisting arrest. Her husband is charged with battery to a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest.
