A Madison man threatened to kill a police officer during a short foot chase after police responded to reports of a disturbance in a north side neighborhood Tuesday night, officials said.

Madison police responded to the 2200 block of Coolidge Street for reports of a disturbance just after 9:10 p.m., according to a release.

Witnesses told police Aileen R. Sigg, 25, of Madison, approached the front of a residence in the area and started yelling, swearing, screaming and threatening to beat up a woman she thought was at the residence.

Sigg was pulled away from the residence, and was standing nearby when police arrived, according to the release. She and Marcus N. Longino, 21, of Madison, told police they hadn’t seen a disturbance.

Longino started making phone calls and walking away from the area when they arrived, police said. They eventually determined he had an outstanding warrant, and when they went to arrest him, he tried to run away from the officer.

The officer caught up with Longino, who threatened to kill him several times, according to the release.

Sigg faces a tentative disorderly conduct charge. Longino faces a tentative resisting an officer charge, and was arrested on the outstanding warrant.
