Man pulls gun on good Samaritan who tried to intervene in downtown domestic dispute

A domestic dispute that started early Sunday morning escalated when good samaritans tried to intervene and found themselves at gunpoint.

The 22-year-old suspect was involved in the dispute with an unidentified other person downtown at approximately 1:51 a.m, according to a Madison Police Department log of significant calls. A number of good Samaritans tried to stop the conflict, which had moved from State Street to a parking lot nearby.

The suspect then “half-pulled” a gun on one an individual who was attempting to keep the peace, the report said. When officers responded, they found a gun at the scene and took the suspect into custody.

Police took the suspect, who “appeared intoxicated and was not cooperative,” to the hospital for medical clearance. He will now go to jail for 2nd degree reckless endangering safety and intoxicated use of a firearm, the report said.
