MADISON (WKOW) — A 16-year-old girl is arrested after getting into a fight, trying to grab an officer’s weapon and attempting to spit on an officer, according to the Madison Police Department. 

MPD was called to a disturbance on the 1100 block of Morraine View Drive Saturday at about 4:30 p.m. 

The girl had just used pepper spray on some of the people she was in an argument with, including several other teens. When police tried to take her into custody she reached for an officer’s weapon and attempted to spit on the officers involved. 

A 38-year-old man, who was hit with the pepper spray, armed himself with a knife during the incident. He said he did so in self-defense. He was arrested for disorderly conduct while armed. 

Officers described the scene as initially tense and chaotic.
