Ax-wielding man calls 911 on himself after destroying his own property

MADISON (WKOW) — Madison police arrested a man after he called 911 on himself for using an ax to destroy his own property.

The incident occurred Sunday night at a home on Madison’s west side, according to a blog postby Madison Police Chief Mike Koval.

The 34-year-old man thought his wife had damaged his action figures, said Koval.

After his wife had left the house, he used a log-splitting ax to destroy his TV, the TV stand, a laptop and a few other items in the house, the post said.

Then the man took his ax outside to attack the family car, police said. He clipped off both side-view mirrors, “smashed the car,” and finally embedded the ax in the in the windshield, according to Koval.

The man called 911, admitting that he overreacted and had too much to drink, Koval wrote.

Officers arrived at the home just after 10 p.m. to find the ax still stuck in the car’s windshield. Police arrested the man on charges of disorderly conduct and felony damage to property, according to the blog post.
