A man Fitchburg police describe as a “dangerous” suspect in a violent domestic incident was arrested Tuesday in Milwaukee and is awaiting transfer to Dane County, authorities said.

A U.S. Marshals Service Task Force arrested Allen C. Artis Jr., 30, Fitchburg police Lt. Edward Hartwick said.

An arrest warrant for Artis was issued through Dane County Circuit Court on Nov. 26 on three domestic-related charges: second-degree recklessly endangering safety, false imprisonment and aggravated battery, Hartwick said.

The charges stem from an incident that occurred Nov. 14 in Fitchburg, Hartwick said.

Fitchburg police investigators worked to develop information on Artis’ whereabouts and requested the assistance of the Marshals Service to apprehend him, Hartwick said.
