12) SOUTH: Adult Arrested Person – 9:54 p.m. A large disturbance had occurred at the 7-Eleven at the Beltline/Todd Drive, with involved parties leaving and going home prior to reporting to Dispatch.  Officers were in the midst of conducting that investigation when the suspect (22 year old AAM) began calling asking for an officer to respond to his location.  Officers did make contact after conducting interviews with others involved, and when placing the suspect under arrest he began to fight.  Multiple officers were needed to take him into custody and secure him in a squad, and as they were doing so he kicked one officer in the chest and stomach.  Investigation revealed that the suspect battered one party and her little sister (approximately 13 years old), chipping her tooth.  The suspect was brought to a hospital reporting chest pains, and will be booked after securing a medical release on multiple charges including domestic battery, domestic DC, physical abuse to a child, resisting, and battery to PO.

13) CENTRAL: Check Person – 11:42 p.m.  Officers were sent to an apartment for a suicidal person with a history of attempts.  The subject (28 year old AAM) reportedly went out on the balcony and said he wanted to die.  Officers arrived and the subject was aggressive with his hands in a fist, struggling with officers attempting to take him into custody.  A taser (electronic control device/ECD) was deployed to take the person into custody without further incident or injury.  The subject was subsequently transported to Detox under protective custody. 

14) CENTRAL: Sexual Assault – 11:46 p.m. Callers reported seeing a female unconscious in a vehicle, completely naked, in the 400 block of West Gilman Street.  Responding officers located the female as described, and investigation shows that she is believed to have been in a downtown establishment very intoxicated and left.  People who vaguely know her then later observed her vehicle with the doors open and three males hanging around outside of the car.  Those who know her approached and the three individuals move away and leave the area, and she is located inside the vehicle as described.  Victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment and forensic needs.  The vehicle was towed and secured for evidence and safekeeping.  Mother of the victim was contacted and will be driving to Madison.  Investigation continuing. 

15) NORTH: Suspicious Person – 3:21 a.m. Officers were sent to the 1600 block of North Stoughton Road for a vehicle running at the gas pumps for approximately 15 minutes with driver sitting in the vehicle.  Officers responded and contacted the driver who is sleeping with the seat belt on and the vehicle running.  The driver was initially cooperative and willing to do standardized field sobriety tests (SFST) but asked to use the restroom first.  Officers allowed it, and when suspect (30 year old AAM) left the bathroom he attempted to get back into the vehicle.  Officers did not allow him, believing he was too drunk to drive and the suspect fights with the officers.   Multiple officers had to respond to assist.  A taser deployment (electronic control device/ECD) eventually results in stabilizing the suspect but only after the suspect had spit in an officer's face.  The suspect lied about his identity and had multiple IDs on him.  The suspect made multiple threats to kill the arresting officers.  It should be noted that the suspect fought with deputies at the jail as well.  Technology known as FAST ID confirmed the suspect's identity and reflected multiple warrants.  This will be the suspect's third OWI arrest which meant drafting a search warrant and taking him to a local hospital for a blood draw.  Investigation continuing.
