MADISON (WKOW) -- A 30-year-old man arrested on multiple charges from disturbances downtown, is also the suspect in a battery that occurred after he posted bail.
Jared Abington was arrested Tuesday night after causing a couple disturbances downtown.
Police say the first disturbance happened on East Main Street around 8:51 p.m., when Abington threw his laptop computer onto a dining table outside a restaurant. Police say the computer caused the chips on the table to scatter, along with the salsa. They say the salsa splattered on the three friends sitting at the table, and a nearby parked car. That car was also damaged because the computer knocked over some fencing that hit the car.
Police say Abington grabbed his computer and walked away towards the Capitol.
The next disturbance was when police say Abington stepped in front of a husband and wife, called the husband a name, pushed him, and kicked the wife in the back.
Abington was taken into custody for two counts of Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Damage to Property, and Bail Jumping. At 10:40 p.m., less than two hours later, he was bailed out of jail.
About a minute or two after he was bailed out, police were dispatched to a battery that took place about a block from the Public Safety Building, near the intersection of South Hamilton and South Carroll Streets.
Police say a 23-year-old woman, from Elkhorn, was walking with friends, when a stranger pushed her from behind and punched her in the head. The man ran off.
Police believe the suspect is Abington, and say there is probable cause to arrest him again.
