Man arrested during traffic stop

A manager at Le Tigre Lounge, 1328 Midvale Blvd., told police he feared for his life when a man in the bar’s parking lot came after him with an aluminum bat Thursday afternoon.

Police said Danny D. Pigram, 39, of Madison, was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct, use of a dangerous weapon, and criminal damage to property during a traffic stop after the incident at the bar.

The victim told police Pigram’s attack came after he asked him to stop selling items from his car in the bar’s parking lot. He said he ran back into the bar and locked the door after Pigram came after him with a bat. The door was hit with the bat, damaging the glass, he told police.

Police said Pigram fled and was pulled over by an officer conducting speed enforcement on Hammersley Road.
