A 54-year-old Mequon man who protested a Thiensville restaurant for cutting him off during an all-you-can-eat buffet earlier this year was protesting again Monday, this time outside the Port Washington Police Department, alleging he is the victim of police brutality. "It's just not right for people to beat you up, then use some law book (to arrest you)," Bill Wisth said, adding that the Monday protest "is a good cause, though — because the police are kind of, like, above the law." Law enforcement officials said Wisth was "uncooperative" and threatened his son — who Wisth says owes him money — resulting in his arrest on Saturday. The district attorney is reviewing the case that could land Wisth disorderly conduct and resisting arrest …
