The information contained in my blog is derived from notes provided by MPD Officers-In-Charge (OIC) at the end of their shifts. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered by an OIC from those in the field who were actively working cases. The OIC is sharing what they were being told, in the moment. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as officers, detectives and investigators continue their work.
From 6:00 a.m. on 07/13/2019 through 6:00 a.m. on 07/14/2019, MPD received 587 calls for service. This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials. For purposes of clarification, the following abbreviations are short-hand for race designations: W=White, AA=African American, NA=Native American, H=Hispanic, ME=Middle Eastern, A=Asian, MR=Mixed Race, U=Unknown. MPD shifts are staggered as follows: 1st detail=7 a.m. to 3 p.m., 2nd detail=12 p.m. to 8 p.m., 3rd detail=3 p.m. to 11 p.m., 4th detail=8 p.m. to 4 a.m., 5th detail=11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
To further break down the 587 calls for service for the past 24-hours, this is how the calls came in per district: Central (145), East (121), Midtown (91), North (61), South (59), West (64), and Other (46). Other=these are calls for service that either do not have a sector listed or the sector is not in the City. For example, if one of our officers assists another law enforcement agency, their sector is not listed in our districts so therefore it is listed under "other".
**Priority calls city-wide from 2:20 p.m. to 2:33 p.m.**
1) CENTRAL: Missing Adult – 8:33 a.m. Alexander Ippolito is a 32-year-old WM who was reported as missing/endangered in the State of Ohio early this month. It is believed he was in Madison as early as July 6 in the Langdon St area and his vehicle was located around James Madison Park on July 10. He is thought to still be in the Madison area, likely downtown. There is no information that he is a danger to others. Please contact the Dane County 911 Center or City of Madison Police Department if you have information as to his location. See Incident Report completed on MPD's website for a recent photo of Ippolito. Investigation continuing.
2) CENTRAL: Death Investigation – 9:05 a.m. MPD and MFD/EMS were dispatched to N Butler St, reference an unresponsive 24-year-old WM subject. Life-saving measures were performed, however, unsuccessful. Roommates reported that the decedent consumed drugs and alcohol the previous night. Medical Examiner on scene. Investigation continuing.
3) CENTRAL: Violation of Court Order – 10:45 a.m. MPD was dispatched to N Butler St for the report of a violation of court order. Due to prior domestic arrests, the 24-year-old WM suspect has a court order not to be around the 23-year-old WF victim or be near her residence. The victim's roommate reported to officers that the victim and suspect were out together last night, which the victim also admitted to be true. There is probable cause to arrest the suspect for felony bail jumping. Investigation continuing.
4) SOUTH: Juvenile Arrest – 11:58 a.m. As an MPD officer was leaving Capitol Petro (2570 Rimrock Rd), he recognized a 16-year-old AAM suspect who was wanted for operating a vehicle without owner's consent (as a passenger) in a prior incident. The officer subsequently contacted the suspect and confirmed his identity. Both the suspect and his mother, who was also present, were cooperative with the arrest. The suspect was arrested and transported to the Juvenile Reception Center (JRC) without incident.
5) CENTRAL: Battery – 1:51 p.m. Earlier in the day, officers arrested a wanted juvenile (16-year-old AAM victim) and transported him to JRC. When he arrived, a 16-year-old AAM suspect (who was already at JRC), struck the victim. Since the juvenile suspect was adjudicated the previous day, he was taken to jail for the new charges of disorderly conduct and battery.
6) NORTH: Found Child – 3:31 p.m. MPD was dispatched to Hayes Rd reference a found 4-year-old HF child. The caller reported that the child came up to him, asked where her mother was, and then ran away. Suspicious about this, the caller followed and called police. CPS was contacted and made arrangements for placement. Just as the foster family arrived, the child's mother called police to report her daughter missing. Mother and daughter were reunited approximately three hours after initial call. Situation was allegedly caused by a miscommunication between family members. Investigation continuing.
7) WEST: OMVWI Investigation – 7:29 p.m. MPD was dispatched to Target (128 Junction Rd) reference an intoxicated WF who entered the store, took a bottle of alcohol and consumed it in the men's section of the store. Loss Prevention Officers reported that the woman had left in a Volkswagen and provided the plate to officers. The vehicle plate came back to a 45-year-old WF. Investigation continuing.
8) NORTH: Domestic Disturbance – 9:20 p.m. MPD was dispatched to a North side residential address reference a caller reporting that his brother was being disruptive and trying to fight him. Officers arrived and contacted both the victim (41-year-old AM) and suspect (40-year-old AM). The victim reported that the suspect had been drinking and getting increasingly aggressive. The two engaged in an argument which turned physical when the suspect began shoving and charging at the victim. The suspect additionally hit the victim's phone out of his hand and continued to bang against walls and on family vehicles. Ultimately, the suspect was arrested and subsequently conveyed to jail for domestic-related disorderly conduct.
9) SOUTH: Drug Incident-Overdose – 10:58 p.m. MPD was dispatched to Lake Point Dr reference an unresponsive 23-year-old WM suspect who was reportedly overdosing. MFD/EMS was also dispatched and administered naloxone upon arrival. Drug paraphernalia was located on the suspect.

Madison Addiction Recovery Initiative (MARI) referral was completed.

The juvenile was entered into NCIC and an ATL was aired. Investigation continuing.
