Foot in Door of Prison for Shoe Swinger

(La Porte, IN) - A La Porte man sort of playing cowboy with the police is now facing the possibility of prison time.  Cy Konieczny is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with Level 6 felony Battery to a Law Enforcement Officer and other counts.


According to police, officers were called to the 100 block of Grove Street on April 25th on a report of a man not welcome at the residence.  Police said Konieczny appeared to be acting kind of crazy and may have taken drugs. 


At one point, police said he took off running from the residence but ran into a chain link fence.  He turned around and while facing officers began swinging a pair shoes in circles by its shoe laces like he was roping steer or using nunchucks while stepping the toward police, according to court documents filed in the case. 


Police said he threw his cell phone striking one of the officers on the leg.
