1968 Atwood Ave. (Ideal Bar)


Devon M. Ernest, age 27, Madison
Suspect will be tentatively charged with Substantial Battery, Disorderly Conduct, and Criminal Damage to Property.


Male, age 41, Madison


A man, enjoying a beer with his girlfriend on a Saturday night, ended up with a gash to his head after glass went flying inside the Ideal Bar, 1968 Atwood Ave. The cut required multiple stitches to close. The 41-year old was injured right after an intoxicated person was kicked out of the tavern. As soon as the suspect left, a window was smashed from the outside in, sending glass everywhere. The bartender was not sure what was thrown, but thought it could have been a beer bottle or pool ball. Another patron, a 40-year old Madison man, went after the suspect. During the chase, the suspect slipped on ice and fell. There was a struggle, but the bar patron was able to hold the suspect down until police arrived.
