MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison police say they arrested three people involved in an attack last week at the McDonald's on Park Street.

Officers arrested 39-year-old Nicole Gordon, 21-year-old Julian Parks and 19-year-old Travers McDaniel, all of Madison.

Police say the suspects were arrested Monday morning at Ho-Chunk Gaming in Madison. Staff members recognized the three from media reports and tried to stall them as officers responded. 

All three were wanted in connection with the January 15th attack at the McDonald's on Park Street.

During that incident, police say Gordon tried to get a refund using a receipt from a different McDonald's restaurant. Officers say Gordon got belligerent when she was denied and that she ordered the two men to attack the restaurant's manager. Police say both men jumped the counter, and one man began throwing punches while the other tried to hit the manager with a coffee pot.

After that, police say one of the men took a handful of cash from an open register before all three fled the scene.

The suspects were arrested on the following charges:


  • Nicole Gordon: Substantial battery -- party to a crime and disorderly conduct
  • Julian Parks: Substantial battery and a retail theft warrant
  • Travers McDaniel: Substantial battery, criminal damage to property and theft
