MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police now have a damaged squad car with an estimated $1,000 dollars in damage after a Madison man jumped on the vehicle.
It happened on the 500 block of State St. early Saturday morning. According to an incident report, 23-year-old Zachary Zweifel was arrested for Criminal Damage to Property and Resisting/Obstructing. Officials say the suspect climbed on the trunk, ran over the roof and jumped on the hood of the squad.
Police say nobody was in the car at the time but officers were patrolling the area on foot. One of them heard the noise and looked to see the suspect jumping up and down on the hood of the car. After trying to run away from officers, he was cornered in a gated, dead-end area near Frances St.
Madison Police say he was apologetic, telling officers he was trying to impress his friends.
