Man accused in Ashwaubenon church incident now also charged in Marathon County
MARATHON COUNTY - A man accused of stealing a large crucifix from a church near Green Bay will now face disorderly conduct charges in Marathon County.

Police in Wausau arrested 29-year-old Brendan McSweeney following a disturbance at a restaurant Friday night.
McSweeney is also charged with criminal damage to property and resisting an officer in that case.

He's suspected of walking into Nativity of Our Lord parish in Ashwaubenon earlier in the day.

The crucifix was then used to bash a sign outside a TV station.

Relatives told investigators McSweeney has a mental illness and has not been taking his medication.

He appeared in Marathon County Circuit Court Monday afternoon.
