Gaige Grosskreutz, the only survivor of Kyle Rittenhouse’s shooting in Kenosha last summer, has a lengthy criminal record.

According to The New York Post, the 28-year-old shooting victim has a criminal record of burglary, drunk driving, and even a domestic incident. Yet, despite Grosskreutz testifying as a star witness in Rittenhouse’s murder trial last week, and providing the court with important evidence on the Aug. 25, 2020 shootings, there was virtually no mention of his criminal history.

Grosskreutz reportedly appeared in a different court for a drunk driving charge just six days before testifying as a witness at Rittenhouse’s trial. The charge was dismissed allegedly due to a technicality, Daily Mail reported.

However, his criminal record is said to span more than ten years.

On Aug. 16, 2020, just over a week before the Rittenhouse shootings, Grosskreutz was arrested at 1 a.m. in West Allis, Wisconsin for reportedly roaming around one of the city’s police departments and videotaping police officers cars.

“Gaige appeared to be videotaping personal vehicles in the rear police parking lot,” the police report of the incident said. “Gaige made clear his anti-law enforcement views. As a result, Gaige was arrested for prowling, booked, cited and released.”

In 2015, Grosskreutz was stopped by police in Greenfield after they noticed his eyes were “bloodshot and glassy,” and officers discovered a 9mm Glock 19 handgun in his vehicle.

He was charged in 2013 for breaking the bedroom window of an ex-girlfriend’s home at 4 a.m. after harassing her on the phone.

Grosskreutz’s first criminal charge happened when he was 17 years old, in 2010. He is said to have gotten into an argument with his grandmother and punched her in the face before throwing a lamp against the wall.

He was charged with disorderly conduct and criminal damage, according to the police report.
