FOND DU LAC, WI (WHBL) - A court hearing is set for Thursday on a request for a restraining order against former state Senator Randy Hopper of Fond du Lac. His ex-wife wants a judge to force Hopper to stay away from her. That’s after he was arrested eight days ago for allegedly getting into a fight with another man at her Fond du Lac County home. Charges have not been filed in the case yet, and sheriff’s deputies are still investigating. Authorities say the 46-year-old Hopper faces possible counts of domestic abuse, trespassing, and the illegal use of a telephone. He was also arrested for drunk driving. Hopper spent last Sunday night in jail, and was freed Monday after posting a 500-dollar bond. Hopper had been hired as the Executive Director of the Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation last June, but the board met last Monday and placed him on unpaid administrative leave. It was Hopper’s second arrest since he was recalled from office 14 months ago. Last October he was arrested for drunk driving while coming home from a Packer game – and a jury found him innocent in March.
