Man stabbed in fight is sentenced for beating teen

Chippewa County (WQOW) – A Chippewa Falls man who was stabbed while fighting with a juvenile will spend 40 days in jail.

Judge James Isaacson sentenced Michael Tuschl Tuesday on a reduced charge of misdemeanor battery. The original charge was felony child abuse.

It happened in July of 2017 at a mobile home park Tuschl shared with a 17-year-old boy and the boy’s mom.

According to the criminal complaint, Tuschl pushed the teen to the ground and threw him into the side of a trailer.

The teen said he pulled out a knife and told Tuschl to stop, but that Tuschl stepped forward to punch him, so he stabbed Tuschl three times.
