Why does this kind of stuff only happen in Wisconsin?

Superior - A Superior man faces charges after trying to protect his son from arrest by nailing him into a cabinet.

Police went to the home of Jeffrey Scott Rantala Sr. with warrants to arrest his son, Jeffrey Scott Rantala Jr.
The father initially refused to let the officers search his house but agreed after a police supervisor told him officers would leave him alone if his son was not there. While waiting outside, an officer heard "a lot of banging going on inside the residence."

As police searched the house, the 25-year-old son kicked his way through a wall to escape a cabinet that was nailed shut.

One officer arrested the son. The other arrested the father, who was charged Monday with obstructing an officer and bail jumping.
