Two arrested after ruckus at south side grocery store

Police: Ex-boyfriend tried to hit woman with car

Madison police have arrested two people following a fight inside a Copps grocery store on the city’s south side last week that led to a man allegedly trying to run down his ex-girlfriend with his car.

The incident happened last Friday at about 7:45 p.m. at the Copps in the 1300 block of South Park Street.

According to police, a fight erupted between Corean Donaldson, 18, of Madison, and her ex-boyfriend Lamar Bryson, 21, of Fitchburg. Bryson went to visit her at the store while she was working.

Witnesses told police that Donaldson started yelling at Bryson, demanding that he leave the store before grabbing his shirt and slapping him three to five times.

Police said the fight moved outside and Bryson got in his car and started to drive fast at Donaldson. A witness told police that Bryson nearly pinned Donaldson behind a bike rack. Bryson told police that he was only trying to scare her, not hurt her.

Bryson was located nearby and arrested by police following the incident. He is facing charges of second-degree reckless endangerment. Police said Donaldson was also charged with disorderly conduct.
