• On March 1 Stephanie Ann Callaway, 26, Madison, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after she allegedly scratched a 16-year-old female on the face and bit the girl’s left wrist during a physical confrontation on Bramblewood Drive.
Reports state that the juvenile said Callaway was driving past her on Bramblewood Drive and yelled at her. The verbal confrontation escalated into a physical battle.
The juvenile said a confrontation had been brewing between her and Callaway and supplied officers with a tape recording of a phone message from Callaway that implied that a physical confrontation would, in fact, occur when the two met. At the police department Callaway, reports state, told officers that she was driving on Bramblewood Drive when the 16-year-old snatched her by the hair and pulled her from her vehicle.
She said another man held her while the juvenile assaulted her. The juvenile was also cited for disorderly conduct.
Later, Callaway came to the police department and reported that the juvenile threw a shoe at her vehicle. The juvenile and her mother then came to the police department and reported that Callaway was in their neighborhood attempting to ignite another physical confrontation. Both Callaway and the juvenile then allegedly got into a heated argument in the police station when the juvenile allegedly threatening to strike Callaway. Callaway then argued that she was a victim in this instance and that the officer was not handling the complaints properly.
The officer said he would seek a court hearing to have a court order issued that would prevent Callaway and the juvenile from having any more contact with each other.

• On March 2 Toney Keeley, 45, Madison, was arrested and charged with obstructing police and providing false information after an officer noticed Keeley standing in front of a car port on Penor Street.
The officer reported that he was aware that Keeley might have been involved in an incident when he struck three women with a folding chair earlier.
The officer requested back up from other officers, in part because Keeley allegedly had outstanding warrants against him and after two other officers surrounded the house, the reporting office stationed himself behind the house. The two other officers confronted Keeley at the carport and Keeley allegedly walked into his residence after the officer requested his name.
A woman at the residence began to yell at officers, reports state, and placed her self between Keeley and the officers. Keeley then told officers that his name was “Robert Brown.” Eventually officers had to use both pepper spray and a taser to secure Keeley.
While using the taser one officer and the woman, who was still attached to Keeley, received the force of the electrical charge. The woman also spit in one of the officer’s face during the confrontation.
Both the woman and Keeley fell onto the dining room table and then the ground. Keeley continued to resist, officers said, and received one or two more taser strikes.
At one point in the incident the woman begged the officers to allow Keeley to walk to the police vehicle without handcuffs.
That request was denied. The reporting officer said he would take a warrant against the woman for misdemeanor obstruction.
Earlier in the day a woman called police and stated that Keeley had allegedly knocked the same woman down and was preparing to buffet the woman about the head with his fists when the complainant pulled Keeley off the woman. Keeley then struck the complainant with a folding chair, reports state.
He also struck a 16-year-old female with the same metal folding chair, reports state.
