 The MPD was called to the Madison Children's Museum this morning when a man, who seemed disoriented, asked staff members in they knew where a laundry might be. He also said he could not find his car. An officer arrived and walked the man out to his squad car, hoping to help him. The man was cooperative and never threatened anyone. The officer told the man before he could get in the squad, the officer needed to know if he had any weapons. The man said he did. He had a handgun in his pocket. He was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon.
