VERONA, Wis. -

Verona police said they arrested a number of people Saturday on charges of operating motor vehicles while intoxicated.

Verona police said they arrested Mark P. Jawson, of Marshall, at 12:53 a.m. Saturday on charges of fourth offense OWI, operating after revocation and obstructing an officer.

Verona police initially stopped Jawson for a defective vehicle light in the 100 block of North Shuman Street. 

Police said Jawson fled on foot from the location of the traffic stop and was apprehended a short time later. He was processed on the OWI charge and booked into the Dane County Jail, according to a Verona Police Department news release.

At 2:49 a.m. Saturday, Verona police arrested Andrew J. Murray, of Mount Horeb, on a second offense OWI charge, according to the news release.

The Verona Police Department said officers arrested Amanda L. Brummond, of Verona, on a charge of fifth offense OWI and Andrew R. Hetzel, of Sun Prairie, on a charge of first offense OWI.

Police said they stopped Brummond and Hetzel on Grove Avenue about 11:45 p.m. Saturday after they were seen driving recklessly on motorcycles.

Brummond was processed on the OWI charge and booked into the Dane County Jail. Hetzel was processed on the OWI charge and released to a responsible party.

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
