DetailsConcerned citizens, out boating on Lake Mendota Tuesday afternoon, called for police after hearing a lot of yelling and then seeing a struggle taking place on the shoreline. They weren't sure if this was a mugging in progress, or if there was another possible drowning taking place.
It turned out the disturbance involved several who had been with a man who died Monday afternoon after swimming in Mendota.
When officers arrived at lake's edge, at the bottom of N. Frances St., a couple of men were fighting and grappling, there was another man looking on, while a fourth man and a woman lay unconscious on the ground nearby. There was also a black lab puppy that had a couple of shoe laces tied around its' neck.
One brawler was bleeding profusely, having been slugged in the nose. Officers attempted to decipher what was going on, and were told by the conscious men that they were "scrappin," that it was no big deal, with one letting an officer know it was "family stuff." He went on to explain that while they are not blood relatives, they consider themselves "family" and that they "road the train" to be family. No one in the group could remember what they were "scrappin" about Tuesday afternoon. However, the man who had been passed out later explained "scrapping" is a pastime for them. He blew a .30 in a Portable Breathalyzer Test (PBT) and was cited for underage consumption. The woman, who had been asleep during the "scrappin," blew a .257 on the PBT. She said she had consumed 6 or 7 cans of beer out of a 30-pack, and also claimed ownership of the puppy. The man who was conscious, but not directly involved in the “scrappin,” blew a .211 on the PBT. He was not arrested or cited. The two men who were “scrappin” were arrested for disorderly conduct. The one with a bloody nose blew a .25 on the PBT. The man who threw the blow, that bloodied the nose, blew a .24 on the PBT.
