Authorities say 26-year-old Cole Vetterkind of Thorp was shot in the leg early Saturday morning after he allegedly broke into the home of his ex-girlfriend's new boyfriend. Vetterkind allegedly attacked 23-year-old Jason Benzschawel.
According to reports, Vetterkind was wearing a mask that was removed during the scuffle to reveal he was wearing make-up similar to that worn by Heath Ledger, who played the Joker in the recent Batman movie.
Vetterkind is recovering from the shooting. The Clark County District Attorney's office has charged him with misdemeanor battery and felony burglary, strangulation and suffocation and intimidation of a victim.
