Jeremy Loveland sentenced to two years probation

MILWAUKEE -- Jeremy Loveland was sentenced to two years of probation in court Tuesday afternoon, after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct, domestic abuse and use of  dangerous weapon. This, after he allegedly threatened to chop off his grandfather’s head with a Samurai sword in early December.

Conditions of Loveland's probation state that he must undergo a mental health evaluation and counseling, have no violent contact with his grandma and grandpa, and have no firearms. If any of these conditions are violated, Loveland must serve six months in the House of Correction.

Police say they recovered 23 knives, swords and a shotgun from Loveland’s St. Francis room. They also found 30 snakes and spiders; many of them venomous. The animals are now being kept at Milwaukee Animal Control.

Facebook pictures Loveland posts for the public are about as colorful as his history. Neighbors say they frequently saw him wearing a top hat and cape while smoking a pipe. A year ago, he made the news when one of his venomous snakes bit him and he nearly died. He was saved by the antidote he kept in the refrigerator.
