Madison police tase dude who was "higher than a kite"

Posted May 9th, 2014 @ 12:00pm by 1310 WIBA/Madison Police

A 19 year old Madison man, described by callers to 911 as "higher than a kite", was arrested after jumping on cars and dancing in traffic Thursday night on Madison's West Side.

The strange behavior began to unfold just before 8 p.m., on a busy stretch of Whitney Way. When police arrived, the shirtless man began to punch a 49 year old man at the West Transfer Point.

Police used a taser and took the teen into custody. He was then taken to a hospital for observation, as he was also chanting and speaking incoherently.
