She’s due back in court this week.

Weimer called emergency dispatchers 79 times since early November, said Sheriff Rob Streck.

Streck said of the 79 calls Weimer has made, the majority came at the end of 2019 into 2020.

“That’s since November, but the uptick has really been about the last week-and-a-half,” Streck said in early January

One of the incidents was recorded on video by Weimer’s fiancé, who says he believes deputies took things too far when she was arrested.

“We were just constantly getting harassed, threatened, intimidation,” said Nick Bond.

Streck said he’s reviewed the video and doesn’t see that his deputies did anything wrong.

"They're doing everything they can to talk, talk it out, try to reason, when that doesn't occur and an arrest has to be made — we do use force at some point, but I have not seen anything or read anything to where there was an amount of force used that was not necessary or unreasonable,” Streck said.

Weimer’s charges include specific instances since Dec. 25, when deputies said she called 911 for an issue with someone cutting off her Wi-Fi, court records show.
