All suspects are presumed innocent until proven guilty in court.

David Madau was at Buffalo Wild Wings on October 8, 2017 at around 6:20pm when officers responded to a call regarding Madau allegedly behaving erratically, screaming obscenities and punching patrons in the face at the restaurant.

Hot Springs Police Officers arrived quickly and came into contact with the suspect, David Madau, 35 of Hot Springs.  Mr. Madau allegedly dared the officers to taze him and then cooperated just long enough to get him outside the building and handcuffed.

Once in handcuffs, Madau allegedly escalated his obscenities and had to be escorted by two officers into the police car. Once inside the car, Madau allegedly smashed his face against the plexiglass partition and also attempted to kick his way out. Madau allegedly smelled strongly of intoxicants and it was reported that he’d had several beers.

The problem began when Madau allegedly got into an argument with another guest at the restaurant.  He allegedly punched that person in the face resulting in minor injury that the officer was able to see.

As the suspect was being transported to the Garland County Detention Center, Mr. Madau allegedly threatened to rape the officer’s daughter, rape and kill the officer, kill the entire officer’s family in their sleep and murder any police officer that gets in the way.  Mr. Madau told the officer that he would hunt him down and kill him when he gets out of jail.

Once at the Detention Center, Madau had to be subdued and was placed in isolation for the safety of others.

Charges for Mr. Madau include Felony Terroristic Threatening, Battery 3rd Degree, Disorderly Conduct and Public Intoxication with a total bond amount of $4,500.
