UW-Madison Police officers tell us they were called to Sellery Hall, 821 W. Johnson Street around 4:20 p.m. for reports of an individual who was being disruptive. He was asked several times by Housing staff to leave, but refused.
Upon arrival, officers located the man and worked to assess the situation. At that point, the man became very combative and violent, and showed no intention of being cooperative.
After a struggle, UWPD officers say they tased the man and was taken into custody. He was transported to a local hospital for evaluation.
The man continued his combative behavior even after he was taken into custody. As a result, a UWPD officer was injured and sustained a minor injury to his hand.
The officer was transported to a local hospital for treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.
Police say the suspect has been identified as Shane Franke, a UW-Madison student.
He has been tentatively charged with Battery to a Police Officer, Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting Arrest.
