Fight Breaks Out Over Woman at Whiskey Jacks

A fight broke out between two men at Whiskey Jacks Saloon regarding a woman Saturday, leaving one man with stitches due to a head injury, according to Joel DeSpain, Madison Police Department spokesperson.

The perpetrator, Ra E. Fury, 28, of Fort Atkinson, came up behind the victim, who is an acquaintance of Fury’s, seated at the bar located at 552 State St., and placed him in a headlock, according to DeSpain. Witnesses told police the suspect then went on to punch the victim’s head repeatedly with his free hand while laughing.

“They evidently both have a common interest in the same woman. I don’t think they’re friends, they just know each other because of this woman,” DeSpain said.

DeSpain said police arrested Fury for substantial battery and paramedics were called to the scene to treat the victim, who needed “about a dozen stitches” after the incident.

It has yet to be confirmed whether either individual was under the influence of alcohol, according to DeSpain.
