MADISON, Wis. — University of Wisconsin-Madison police have arrested a student after a disturbance at a residence hall.
Officers were called to Sellery Hall around 4:20 p.m. Monday on a report of someone being disruptive. Police say housing staff had asked the man several times to leave, but he refused.
Police located the man and say he became combative. After a struggle, campus police used a stun gun to take the man into custody. He was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
One officer had a minor injury to his hand and was taken to a hospital but is expected to be OK.
UW-Madison police say the student has been tentatively charged with battery to a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
