RACINE — A Racine man was charged Monday after he allegedly threatened to shoot a woman in the face when the bar he was at ran out of the liquor he wanted.

Racine County prosecutors charged Kofi T. Reaves, 39, of the 900 block of Jackson Street, with two counts of disorderly conduct and one of resisting an officer, according to court records. The charges stem from an incident before 7:19 p.m. Saturday at Kenny’s Bar, 1300 N. Main St., Racine.

A woman told police that Reaves asked for a particular shot and told the woman: “You’re pretty, but I’m going to shoot you in your face” when the woman told him they were out of that type of liquor, according to his criminal complaint. Reaves repeated the comment three or four times and threw his chicken wings on the floor before leaving, the complaint stated.

The complaint didn’t include the name of the shot, nor of the liquor, that reportedly sparked the incident.

Reaves was taken to the Racine County jail, but staff refused to accept him because his blood-alcohol concentration was too high, the complaint stated. At the hospital, Reaves allegedly used profane language and two officers had to hold him on the bed, using a second pair of handcuffs.

The complaint also didn’t include Reaves’ blood-alcohol concentration.

A $400 signature bond was set for Reaves during his initial appearance in court Monday.

Assistant State Public Defender Helmi Hamad entered not guilty pleas on Reaves’ behalf to the misdemeanor charges.
