Man arrested for pellet gun incident

Early Sunday morning, an intoxicated 22-year-old Waunakee man was taken into custody for carrying a concealed weapon and resisting arrest on the 400 block of West Gilman Street, according to a Madison Police Department report.

The suspect, Noah L. Carpino, was approached by a Madison Police officer at approximately 12:03 a.m. and took off running on West Gilman Street. He dropped what seemed to be a handgun while being pursued by the officer, according to the report by Public Information Officer Joel DeSpain. The object was confirmed to be a pellet gun.

Carpino declined to say why he was carrying the weapon while wearing a ski mask and a bandanna, DeSpain wrote in the report.

Originally, the officer arrived at the downtown site to check into the welfare of a masked man, who appeared to be “very unsteady on his feet.”

The suspect is currently on a probation hold.
