A Madison (WI) police officer was assaulted when a crowd turned on him as he attempted to arrest a battery suspect.
As the officer approached a female suspect that he had witnessed punching a man in the face a large crowd turned against the officer, chanting anti-police rhetoric, including, "We need to start killing these officers."
The daughter of the woman who the officer was attempting to arrest grabbed at the officer and tried to free her mother. The officer was able to take the two women into custody even though he was under assault by the crowd.
Madison Police Captain Vic Wahl stated, "He was able to literally get assaulted in the midst of a large crowd and still take these women into custody without causing any injuries to anyone."
