According to the criminal complaint, Dustin told police that on Christmas Day he was out with his fiancée in Port Washington, 30 miles north of Milwaukee, and the pair went to several bars. The couple reportedly got into a fight with two men and another woman at the Grand Avenue Saloon. At 11:55 pm Port Washington police responded to reports of a stabbing at the bar and later caught up with Dustin's SUV.
