On 11/26/2021 at about 8:34pm the Madison Police Department was dispatched to the Fast Forward Skate Center for reports of a large number of unsupervised minors causing a disturbance.  Upon the arrival of police an estimated 250 persons, mostly juveniles, were located inside of the business.  While officers were on scene, a fight started inside of the business and this fight escalated and eventually spilled out into the parking lot where several large fights were going on simultaneously.  At one point members of the crowd climbed on top of Madison Police Department squad cars that were parked outside.

Two juvenile and one adult arrest was made.  A taser style weapon was taken from this adult after they attempted to use it on another individual.  Members of the crowd attempted to disrupt one of these arrests and pepper spray was required to protect the arresting officers from these individuals and secure the arrest.  A member of the Madison Police Department suffered a minor injury during this arrest. 

The Madison Police Department requested assistance from our law enforcement partners in the area and eventually 27 officers from at least 5 area law enforcement agencies were on scene.  The Madison Fire Department staged ambulances nearby in the event they were needed.  All of these resources were necessary to break up the fights, disperse the crowd, and restore order.

If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact the Madison Police Department at 255-2345.  If you wish to remain anonymous, please contact Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014, or, on the web at  Individuals contacting Crime Stoppers can receive up to $1,000 in cash rewards for tips that lead to an arrest.
