Three men arrested after attacking pedestrian in Madison

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Three men face criminal charges after they allegedly refused to stop for a pedestrian in Madison, and then beat the walker after he slapped the hood of their vehicle.  

It happened early Saturday, just after midnight on University Avenue.  

Police said a 29-year-old man was crossing an intersection when an SUV cut him off. And when he slapped the vehicle for not yielding, police said the three men inside got out, beat him, and drove away.

The pedestrian suffered a broken nose. The attackers were found a short time after the incident.

Police said all three face charges of substantial battery. One of them also faces a charge of possessing cocaine with the intent to deliver.
