The charge stems from an altercation at the tiki bar at Pelican Point Restaurant at Windmill Point Marina on July 19. Kessler is the man who was last seen with Claudine J. Gifford, 44, of Burgess, before her disappearance on the evening of July 6. The charge is unrelated to that investigation.

Kessler was ordered held without bond when he appeared before the magistrate. He made his initial court appearance a few hours later, which included a bond hearing. Kessler was again denied bond, and appealed that ruling to the circuit court, which will hear the bond appeal on Friday, July 25.
