A woman's nose was broken during a fight at Denny's early Friday morning, and officers ended up drawing a gun and using a stun gun while making arrests.
According to the Wauwatosa police report:
When an officer arrived at 2:51 a.m., a car was speeding away from the restaurant at 11155 W. North Ave. It stopped in the parking lot of a nearby hotel and three men got out. The officer drew his firearm and ordered them back into the vehicle several times, but they wouldn't comply.
Eventually, other officers came to provide back-up and the first officer used his electronic control device to stop a 25-year-old man from resisting arrest.
The man complained of injury from the stun gun, and a 23-year-old man had a cut to his forehead from the fight at Denny's. However, they refused aid from emergency medical providers.
The younger man had punched a 21-year-old woman with whom he had gotten into an argument at Denny's. They had met at a bar earlier in the evening and met up at the restaurant. They exchanged punches and he also pulled another woman by the hair.
He was arrested for battery. The 25-year-old was arrested for resisting an officer.
The injured woman was taken to Froedtert Hospital with bleeding and a broken nose, but she was also arrested for disorderly conduct.
