Tucson police officer observing Madison PD crowd control

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- A representative from the Tucson, Ariz., Police Department will be in Madison this weekend to watch how MPD officers handle the crowds following Saturday's Final Four game.

There were no major issues for Madison police when thousands of fans poured onto State Street after the Badgers beat the Arizona Wildcats last Saturday to advance to the Final Four. Back in Tucson, however, Wildcat fans clashed with police in riot gear who dispersed the rowdy crowd with pepper spray.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports an officer from the Tucson police command staff observe how Madison police handle the crowd after Wisconsin plays Kentucky Saturday night for a trip to the national championship game.
