Fight (In Progress)

Incident Date

05/13/2012 - 2:11 AM


406 W. Gilman St. (Sake Lounge)


Tremain A. Pursley, age 28, Madison
Mr. Pursley was arrested for Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting/Obstructing.


A prong from a department issued electronic control device (ECD) ended up hitting a Madison Police officer in the hand as she and other officers struggled with a combative battery suspect early Sunday morning. The MPD had been called to the Sake Lounge, 406 W. Gilman St., for a fight in progress. Two men were going at it, with the suspect winning the battle. He ignored orders to end the violence and resisted as officers attempted to place him under arrest. One officer deployed an ECD. A prong hit the suspect in the back, having the desired effect, but another struck an unintended target: the hand of the officer. The suspect was handcuffed and continued to be combative while taken to jail.
