Details

On July 3rd, 2013, Madison Police Officers were strategically positioned in and around Warner Park, and based on past information of problem areas, the area of Northport Drive and Dryden was a focal point.  Shortly after 11pm, officers moved over to the 1800 block of Northport, where they noticed a hostile group had began gathering.  After moving closer, officers described a group of 30 or more onlookers, and two males that were actively fighting! 

Officers moved in to stop the fight, but the group began to circle the officers and yell expletive's.  One suspect, later identified as Jayton Richmond, ceased fighting only to start chasing the presumed victim.  It did not matter that the police were on scene, and the use of pepper spray was threatened by officers.  When officers attempted to take Richmond into custody, that was also met with resistance by both Richmond and the hostile crowd, but they finally managed to arrest him.  Officers conveyed Richmond to The Dane County Jail.
