Man Accused of Arson, Abuse Gets Fresh With Judge Submitted: 01/25/2013
Rhinelander - Judges usually command respect, but Oneida County Judge Michael Bloom got just the opposite from a man accused of serious crimes today in court.

Jonathan Thorman, 29, is in the Oneida County Jail.

Minocqua Police arrested him early yesterday morning.

They say he severely hurt a woman, smashed cars with a hammer, and set a house on fire in Minocqua early Wednesday morning.

Appearing via video in court today, Thorman was less than respectful. The prosecuting attorney asked for a $10,000 cash bond, but Judge Bloom set it at $25,000.
