    MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- A Republican running for an open state Assembly seat next week was cited for disorderly conduct nearly 21 years ago.

    Police reports show Jon Plumer's daughter told neighbors in Sun Prairie in October 1997 that he threw her out of the house and pushed his wife to the floor. A neighbor told police Plumer threatened him when he went over to the Plumer house to check on the woman.

    Plumer was cited for disorderly conduct in February 1998. He didn't fight the citation and ended up paying a $116 forfeiture.

    Plumer on Monday denied pushing his wife or threatening his neighbor. Plumer's daughter said Monday that she lied to the neighbor about her father pushing her mother because she was 18 at the time and didn't get along with him.

    The now-former neighbor stood by his account to police in an interview Monday.
