1500 block Troy Dr.


     The MPD arrested a 33-year-old Madison man Sunday night following two separate gun calls. Marlon M. Smith was arrested for disorderly conduct while armed, carry/display facsimile firearm, bail jumping, and a probation violation.
     The first call came around 9:30 p.m. after witnesses said a man pulled a handgun and started pointing it at several people during a disturbance at the Warner Park Boat Launch, 1201 Woodward Dr.
     The suspect fled as officers arrived.
     At approximately 11:25 p.m. officers were called to a parking lot in the 1500 block of Troy Dr. for another disturbance where a man was pointing a handgun at a another victim.
     The suspect got in a car and fled as police arrived, but was arrested a short time later following a traffic stop.
     A very realistic looking BB gun was found near a dumpster in the Troy Dr. parking lot. It is believed to have been the weapon used in the two gun calls.
