MADISON, Wis. -

Madison police said an incident reported last week involving a 60-year-old man who allegedly threw urine at police happened at a detox center.

Julius A. Wilson, 60, of Madison, is accused of throwing urine at two police officers and a treatment facility worker, according to a release from Madison police.

Police said the incident occurred at 1:27 a.m. on April 7, while the officers and a worker were trying to subdue Wilson at the facility on Industrial Drive. One of the officers and the facility worker said they were hit in the face with urine when the man threw a plastic receptacle at them. The other officer got urine on his uniform.

Wilson tried to punch the officers and grabbed the collar of one of the officers, damaging the officer's uniform, police said.

The officer and the staff member were treated at a local hospital for exposure to the urine, officials said.

Wilson has been arrested on tentative charges of two counts of discharge of bodily fluids at a public safety worker, two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of resisting an officer.

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    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.
