MADISON (WKOW) -- A Dane County Sheriff's deputy had reason to believe 34-year-old Thomas Jackson IV was inside McDonald's on Park Street. The deputy requested assistance from Madison Police to take Jackson into custody due to an active apprehension request for a parole violation.
As South District officers began to set up a perimeter around the restaurant, the deputy entered. When Jackson saw the uniformed deputy, he fled. However, while running through the doors, he ran into a family attempting to enter at the same time. Jackson pushed through the family, causing a 67-year-old woman to fall to the ground.
Jackson fled through the South Transfer Point and into the 800 block of W. Badger Road where he was physically taken to the ground, handcuffed and arrested by a South District officer.
Madison Fire Rescue had been called to respond and conveyed the older woman to Meriter Hospital, where she was admitted for a broken hip.
Jackson was booked into the Dane County Jail on the parole violation. The Dane County Sheriff's Department will be reviewing this incident and adding additional charges related to the subject resisting arrest and the injuries to the grandmother.
