A Madison Police officer suffered numerous injuries early Saturday morning after being repeatedly punched in the 600 block of University Ave. The officer was trying to stop a male suspect from getting into a fight with others when the suspect began delivering blows at the officer's head. A second officer used an electronic control device to help bring the suspect under control. During the fight, the suspect's girlfriend repeatedly grabbed at the second officer's duty belt. Both suspects were arrested. During the melee, a large crowd surged toward the officers and OC (Oleoresin Capsicum) spray was utilized to create distance.
