Betty's Lane and Theresa Terrace


Maurice Sherill Howard, 38-year-old male of Madison, WI
CHARGES: Resisting/Obstructing An Officer, Support Warrant & Unlawful To Possess Open Intoxicants On Public Street


An officer was on routine patrol in the area of Betty's Lane, and noticed that a social gathering was ongoing, shortly after 7:50pm. The officer observed an individual had moved onto the public sidewalk with alcohol, and contacted Maurice Howard. The officer asked for identification, and Howard responded that he didn't do id's, and proceeded to purport himself as someone else.

A number of individuals took issue with the officer dealing with Howard, and a crowd then started approaching the officer's squad. The officer soon discovered that Howard has been untruthful about his identity, likely due to the fact that he had an outstanding warrant, and,he was taken into custody.
