1600 block S. Park St.


Male, age 27, Madison


 Anti-Trump slogans were found spray-painted on a pickup that was engulfed in flames late Friday. The truck was parked in a lot in the 1600 block of S. Park St. and a couple of passersby called in the fire in just before midnight. The MPD was able to contact the man who had been driving the Dodge Ram. He was at a holiday party when the fire was spotted. The 27-year-old did not know who would want to damage his vehicle and said he had not engaged in any heated political discussions at the social gathering he attended.
