Editor's note: The following story was updated on June 12. A previous version incorrectly stated Calkins was accused of pushing his girlfriend in front of a train and incorrectly implied vthat his actions resulted in the amputation of her arm. He was not charged with causing such an injury. An earlier version of the story also said Calkins faced four charges in connection with the incident, including "causing bodily harm." In fact, he was charged with three misdemeanors. "Causing bodily harm" was part of the language included in the battery charge.

TOWN OF MUKWONAGO — A 22-year-old man who allegedly pushed his girlfriend had his bail modified during court proceedings on Feb. 15. The change went from no contact to no violent contact with the victim.

Brandon Calkins of Mukwonago was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct, resisting an officer and battery. He is currently out on bail.

According to the criminal complaint, Bilicki's mother told officers Bilicki had called her claiming that her boyfriend, Calkins, had injured her. The complaint said Bilicki told her mom she had been upset by Calkins' behavior and was trying to walk away from him.

As she walked down the railroad tracks away from Calkins on Nov. 14, 2016, he caught up with her and pushed her down, the complaint said. Bilicki's mother told police that her daughter told her she struck her head on a rock.

Bilicki was found by officers to be severely injured, with her left arm amputated above the elbow, injury to her thigh and a deep laceration to her forehead. Officers applied a tourniquet to her arm to stop the bleeding.

The complaint said officers spoke to Bilicki's mother and that Bilicki was unable to provide a statement herself.

As a result of the accident, Bilicki has undergone many surgeries, including facial reconstruction, repair of her right femur and right clavicle, and further amputation of her left arm, the complaint said.

Neither Calkins' attorney nor Kelsey Bilicki could be reached for comment. His next court date is scheduled for March 1.
