A Waukesha man accused of tearing through Delafield last fall on a naked crime spree has been charged again, this time for allegedly punching a police officer and destroying some of his grandmother's property.
Cedric Kinjerski, 19, was charged Aug. 23 in Waukesha County Circuit Court with battery or threat to a law enforcement officer, two counts of misdemeanor criminal damage to property, felony bail jumping and disorderly conduct. He also stands accused of a host of felony and misdemeanor offenses in unrelated cases.
The latest charges are associated with a recent spasm of violent and destructive behavior from Kinjerski, according to a criminal complaint. Kinjerski reportedly smashed his grandmother's stovetop and television Aug. 19, seemingly without provocation, then punched a police officer, who responded to reports of the damage, in the face.
He is already potentially facing decades behind bars and $75,000 in fines for his alleged role in the Delafield crime spree. In that case, he's accused of stealing three vehicles, causing thousands of dollars in property damage and leading police on an hourslong manhunt that concluded when Kinjerski was apprehended inside a home on Sugar Island in Lower Nemahbin Lake in the village of Summit.

He reportedly told police that throughout the incident he "thought he was God" and was in a "Grand Theft Auto" video game.
His next court appearance on that case is scheduled for Sept. 2. He's facing three felony counts of driving a motor vehicle without the owner's consent, a burglary charge and two counts of misdemeanor vandalism.
Court records indicate Kinjerski's parents have a history of mental illness. He has been living in Waukesha with his grandmother in a home on the 300 block of Rawlins Drive since he was born. However, his current address is listed as the Waukesha County Jail.
Kinjerski also has a criminal record. He has one prior conviction for misdemeanor battery and has four total pending criminal cases.
If convicted of the new charges, Kinjerski could face up to about 15 years behind bars and $41,000 in fines. He's being held on a $5,000 cash bond, court records show. His next hearing in the new case is scheduled for Sept. 9.
