A Waupaca man is free on a 5000 dollar signature bond following a felony battery charge in Waupaca County Circuit Court. 33 year old David J. Van is charged with intending bodily harm. Van is alleged to have punched another man in the head several times last Monday during an altercation in Weyauwega. The complaint says the wounds required stitches. If convicted, Van could face up to 3 and a half years in prison. He is due back in court next Thursday.
