Man arrested following domestic disturbance on Madison’s east side Thursday

Camden Road police scene

MADISON, Wis. — A 36-year-old man was arrested following a domestic disturbance on Madison’s east side that closed the area for multiple hours Thursday.

Numerous officers from the Madison Police Department responded to the disturbance in the 5400 block of Camden Road around 3 p.m. Thursday. After hours at the scene, police cleared the area shortly before 9 p.m., Officer Ryan Kimberley said.

Kimberley said multiple people were inside a home, adding they did not believe any weapons were involved but could not say for sure. The incident was resolved peacefully without anyone getting hurt.

A News 3 Now crew at the scene saw a man come out of the home with his hands raised around 8:20 p.m. The man was handcuffed and put into a police squad car.

In an incident report posted Friday, the police department said they responded to the home for a 911 disconnect. When officers got to the scene, they learned the man was acting violently and a child was inside.

Negotiators eventually convinced the man to let the child leave the home. He later left the home without incident, police said.

He was arrested on tentative charges of disorderly conduct while armed, battery and criminal damage to property.
