On Sunday morning, at 1:52 a.m., Madison Police were called to The Brink Lounge, 701 E. Washington Avenue after private security reported a large fight - involving around 10 people. When officers arrived the disturbance had ended, but Brink Lounge staff asked for police help in clearing the nightclub. Most patrons were cooperative, but officers say a few were not. A physical confrontation took place between one suspect and one officer, which led to the officer being scratched in the face, and the suspect being struck in the mouth. Pepper spray was used on another bar patron who an officer said tried to interfere with an arrest. The Madison Police Department had 16 officers respond to the scene. An unknown number of Capitol Police officers also assisted.
