Sending flowers to your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day usually usually earns you brownie points. In the case of a 23-year-old Sheboygan man, it earned him a date with police.
Zachary S. Zelko is facing a felony bail jumping charge after he was accused of violating a restraining order by sending his estranged wife flowers for Valentine’s, the Sheboygan Press reported.
According to a criminal complaint cited by the newspaper, Zelko sent the flowers, along with a card stating, “Happy Valentine’s Day, enjoy the chocolates,” to her workplace just before noon Monday.
The estranged wife contacted the Sheboygan County District Attorney’s office, who contacted police.
Zelko was supposed to have no contact with his wife under a restraining order put into effect in mid-January after Zelko was arrested on charges of battery, strangulation and false imprisonment.
