Elderly woman injured while in Capitol Police custody

Ann Fleischli said she was collecting signatures on the Capitol Square during the Dane County Farmers’ Market on Saturday when Officer Michael Syphard arrested her. Syphard took her into an office in the state Capitol, Fleischli said, and twice shoved her into a chair while she was handcuffed, leaving her with a bleeding cut that had to be bandaged with gauze. Fleischli filed a complaint on Monday with Capitol Police, accusing Syphard of “brutal and violent” conduct.
