MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - A 56-year-old Kiel man has made his first court appearance following his arrest at the private burial for a state trooper killed in a confrontation with a bank robbery suspect.

WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1P4Cprn ) reports Michael Mangan appeared in court in Manitowoc County on Thursday, after twice failing to show up earlier this week. He’s charged with felony resisting an officer causing injuring and misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, obstructing an officer and disrupting a funeral.

A criminal complaint says officers working security at the cemetery where 21-year-old Trevor Casper was laid to rest Monday had noticed Mangan carrying a bag with a cylindrical object sticking out.

Police say Mangan became verbally abusive and physically resisted when they tried to escort him away.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Mangan.
