Cornhusker fan attempts to jump over moving cab
22-year-old suffers minor injuries, cited
MADISON, Wis. — A college football fan suffered minor injuries early Saturday after police said he tried to jump over a moving cab in downtown Madison.
Madison police Lt. Eric Tripke said 22-year-old Bryce Consbruck, of Nebraska, was on North Broom and West Gorham streets at 2:05 a.m. when he intentionally ran into traffic in an attempt to jump over a Union Taxi cab as it drove by. Consbruck failed the jump and suffered facial injuries in the process.
Tripke said Consbruck, who was reportedly intoxicated, was taken to the hospital for treatment of his minor injuries.
Consbruck was cited on suspicion of sudden pedestrian movement.
“Consbruck gave the officers an expletive laden statement in which he hopes the ‘Huskers’ defeat the Badgers and that he promises to ‘never try and jump over a moving car again,'” Tripke said in a news release.
Police said Consbruck was visiting Madison for Saturday’s football game.
