Details

Madison Police responded to a violent outbreak in the area of Theresa Terrace and Bettys Lane on 6/28/2013, at approximately 730pm.  An officer in the neighborhood was flagged down by a citizen who described a huge fight that was going on just a block away.  The officer arrived on scene, and stated that dozens of people were fighting in the middle of the street with a variety of weapons from garden rakes to dumbbells.  People were reportedly using locks in their hands as brass knuckles, and brandishing sticks. 

There were at least 3 victims that received significant lacerations and broken teeth during the melee, and this fight involved as many as 75 people at one point.  Two suspects were arrested for their involvement in this ordeal, but The Madison Police Department continues to investigate this matter to determine the precipitating cause.  Additional arrests in this scenario are likely, as this particular call involved 24 officers and 3 ambulances from The Madison Fire Department.  Additional patrol officers were also brought into the area to keep additional fights from erupting throughout the night.
