A 53-year-old man is arrested after he allegedly pushed a another man down a flight of stairs.
On August 16th Madison Police Officers responded to the 2110 block of Allied Drive, in reference to the man who had fallen down the stairs.
The Madison Fire Department treated the 52-year-old victim, who complained of numbness and limited mobility in his legs after the fall and was worried about his ability to walk.
The suspect was later identified as 53-year-old Larry Nellem.
Nellem apparently confronted the victim about a $2.00 debt, and when the victim tried to negotiate a settlement, he was pushed down the stairs by Nellem.
The victim also says Nellem pulled out a knife at one point during the argument.
Nellem was not on scene when officers completed their initial investigation, but he was taken into custody on 8/20/2013, in reference to the probable cause that existed for his arrest.
