MADISON, Wis. -

A Madison man was arrested Wednesday for his involvement in two north side disorderly conduct incidents, according to a release.

Police responded to 1423 Northport Drive Wednesday at 1:44 p.m. to reports of a person saying “get police here now,” according to the release.

Officials said they responded to the Shell Gas Station and determined that Nebuchanezaar A. Wright, 31, of Madison, had threatened to kill the clerk because he was upset that his cellphone was not working.

Officials said Wright took off his shirt, went behind the counter to spit on the clerk, and began taking things off the shelves.

Wright left the store just before police arrived without anyone being harmed, according to the release.

Shortly after 3:47 p.m. police noticed two people about to fight in the 2600 block of North Sherman Avenue, according to the release.

Officials said Wright was at the incident and was seen as the aggressor as he proceeded to spit into the victim’s face.

Officials said Wright did not cooperate with police after being told he was under arrest and police had to threaten to Taser him before he would comply.

A search of Wright’s property produced remnants of marijuana and a small bag of cocaine, according to the release.

Wright was arrested on charges of two counts of disorderly conduct, and possession of cocaine, according to the release.
