3019 E Washington Ave


Friday evening, officers arrested a 19-year-old man that was threatening people with a baseball bat on two different occasions. 

Sachel F. Hamm, armed with a baseball bat, was yelling "I'll smack you in the head" at people in the parking lot of a gas station in the 3000 block of E Washington Ave around 4pm Friday.  When officers attempted to contact him, Hamm took off running, and after a successful dragnet, complete with a k9 track, he was taken into custody.

Hamm was also the suspect in another prior incident in the 1200 block of Elizabeth St (21-152701) where a car was damaged with a baseball bat. 

Hamm was booked into the Dane County Jail with tentative charges of disorderly conduct while armed, resisting, and criminal damage to property in reference to both incidents.
