35-year-old male of Madison, WI


Madison Police Officers were assigned to the Rhythm & Booms celebration in and around Warner Park, and at 10:36pm, officers responded to a fight in progress in the 1300 block of Troy Drive.  Officers found a bloody Shaun Barr, and a 35-year-old property owner who had been attacked by Barr.  Interviews revealed an intoxicated Barr had urinated on the property owner's fence, and when Barr was confronted about the inappropriate activity, Barr charged and began punching the victim 20-30 times in the head.  There were even reports that Barr attempted to gouge the eyes of the victim!   The victim had no other alternative but to beat Barr off of him with a small flashlight.  Barr levied threats against the victim and police, continued to spew expletive's, and was immediately taken to The Dane County Jail on charges listed.  Witnesses stated that if police had not arrived when they did, this ordeal would have been much more involved and violent.
