2800 E. Washington Ave


Bradley A. Bartell, 63-year-old male of Mauston , WI
CHARGES: Felony Resisting/Obstructing An Officer & Disorderly Conduct


Police responded reference a disturbance involving a male subject that had been standing in front of a business and shouting for no apparent reason. The suspect was described as wearing a pink shirt and a cowboy hat, and the parking lot was his last known location.Officers arrived, spotted a male subject matching the clothing description given, and attempted to contact the male; later identified as Bradley Bartell.

Officers attempted to verbally engage Bartell, but he continued to walk towards a parked RV, citing that he was from Austin Texas. While it was unclear as to the correlation of officers telling Bartell to stop, and where he was from, he disobeyed distinct orders to stay away from the RV, and retreated inside. He started reaching for items which police thought possibly could involve the search for a weapon! Officers attempted reasonable means to get Bartell to come outside, but he refused. A struggle at the doorway of the RV began between Bartell and officers, but they eventually took him into custody. One officer sustained an injury to a finger on his hand, and did have to seek medical attention at a nearby emergency room.
