Details

A verbal confrontation on a Madison Metro bus led to a battery yesterday afternoon as several teenagers and a 40-year-old woman got off at the East Transfer Point, 102 West Corporate Dr.

The woman told police, that after disembarking, she was surrounded by the teens with one punching her a couple of times in the face.

She had blood dripping from a cheek, and an eye was beginning to swell, as she waived officers down as they responded to the scene.  

The victim said the teens had been loud and disruptive on the bus, and that she had told them to "calm yourselves down!" She said the group then began to call her names, and later confronted her after all got off of the bus.

The victim provided a good description of the suspect, and officers were able to locate her in the area. She was arrested for battery after trying to convince police that the woman had assaulted her first.
