 Downtown officers seized a 24" sword from beneath the sleeping bag of a man who was dozing in the 500 block of N. Frances St. Tuesday night. The MPD had awoken him because he had items plugged into a City of Madison power outlet. The 69-yer-old initially said the sword belonged to another slumbering man, but later acknowledged it was his.
