Police conclude Whitehorse Middle School investigation, hand off to DA

DA Ozanne is reviewing case

MADISON, Wis. - The police investigation into an alleged incident at a Madison middle school is finished, according to the Madison Police Department.

MPD spokesperson Joel DeSpain said the department handed the investigation over to the Dane County District Attorney's Office. District Attorney Ismael Ozanne is currently reviewing the investigative materials of the case, DeSpain said.

The Madison Metropolitan School District placed the acting principal of Whitehorse Middle School on leave after a student said he pushed her and tore out three of her braids.

The incident prompted black community leaders to host a community meeting and the MMSD superintendent to send a letter to parents saying the district planned to launch a new system for staff, students and families to report incidents of racism or discrimination.
