MADISON, Wis. — After the Madison Police Department closed its investigation into an alleged hate crime that happened in front of Portillo’s on the city’s east side, News 3 Now filed an open records request to obtain the documents disclosing why MPD did not follow through with criminal charges.

According to the original police report, Madison resident Yisrael Ami told MPD he was sitting in the car with his daughter waiting for his wife to come out of the restaurant when a group of Trump supporters pulled into the parking lot and began yelling racial slurs at them. He stated they got out of their cars at one point but no physical contact was made. Ami eventually drove off after his wife returned.
