Robert Provencial

A man from Barron faces several misdemeanor charges after he allegedly threatened members of the Marshfield Medical Center staff during a confrontation Saturday, Jan. 19, 2019, county Circuit Court documents said.

A complaint filed Jan. 22 identifies the defendant as Robert J. Provencial Jr., 37, 639 E. La Salle Ave., Barron.

According to the complaint, Marshfield Medical Center summoned Rice Lake police on Saturday evening, Jan. 20, on a report of a man who had allegedly threatened staff members.

A nurse told police that medical staff were attending to the defendant’s girlfriend, and had asked him to step out of the room. He allegedly started to yell at staff.

Another staff member said he pulled the defendant out of the room and into a hallway, then asked him to leave the building, which he did.

As he was being escorted from the building, the defendant allegedly punched a wall and said “he would be waiting for all of the staff” when they were done with their work.

An officer who interviewed the defendant noted one of his hands had blood on it.

The defendant allegedly cursed an officer several times while being booked into jail.

Court records show that at the time of the incident, Provencial was a defendant in an active 2017 disorderly conduct case. He had been the subject of a statewide bench warrant in that case since he failed to show up for a status hearing on Sept. 20, 2018, court documents said.
