A 39-year-old man turned himself in Wednesday morning for an incident at an East Side bar early Friday that critically injured a 62-year-old man, Madison police reported.
James R. Krogman was taken to the Dane County Jail on a tentative charge of substantial battery, police spokesman Tyler Grigg said in a report Wednesday.
