MADISON, Wis. — Madison police arrested two men Saturday night for allegedly causing a disturbance at an east-side restaurant.

Officers responded to a restaurant in the 1200 block of Williamson Street around 8:30 p.m. after getting a call reporting the two men.

One of the suspects, 38-year-old Jason Stone, was banned from the restaurant two weeks ago but returned twice on Saturday.

The other suspect, 33-year-old Jeffery Jefferson, spent time outside the restaurant offering people hugs; when an individual would decline, Jefferson became confrontational and tried fighting the individual, according to an incident report.

By the time police arrived, Jefferson had left the area, but officers found him at the Willy Street Fair. During his arrest, Jefferson reportedly spit at, kicked and threatened officers. He allegedly damaged a squad car during the incident, too.

Stone was subsequently arrested on suspicion of trespassing, five counts of felony bail jumping and five counts of misdemeanor bail jumping. Jefferson was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct, damage to property, threats to law enforcement, resisting arrest, five counts of misdemeanor bail jumping, and three counts of felony bail jumping.
