When officers arrived, a woman who was involved, Sydney Clemens, 18, had left the scene and they later met with her at the West District Station, Malloy said.

Police developed probable cause to arrest Clemens for battery and disorderly conduct and when she was told she was being arrested, Clemens began to physically resist officers, kicking and attempting to elbow an officer, causing a hand injury to the officer, Malloy said.

Clemens was booked into the Dane County Jail on tentative charges of battery to law enforcement, battery, and disorderly conduct, Malloy said.
