    Marshfield police have responded to an "ongoing emergency situation" on North Central Avenue that poses an "extraordinary threat," according to a Wood County Dispatch alert sent out Friday morning.


    Police have closed North Central Avenue north of Franklin Street to Ives Street, the alert said.


    People are asked to stay away from the area.

    HA! Yeah that IS the primary concern when a druggy pulls a gun on innocent LACs.

    “Our primary concern now is whether or not he ingested a wide variety (of drugs) ... or a large substance,” (Police Chief)Jepsen said.

    From the news article:

    "A police officer near Walgreens at the time of the robbery spotted the suspect exiting the building. The officer drew his revolver and ordered the suspect to put his hands up."

    Revolver? seriously?

    I seen an officer very recently, (can't remember where) but noticed he was carrying a revolver also, and thought the same thing. I thought maybe he is one of them old fashioned guys. He was probably 40's or 50's I would guess. Maybe he was grandfathered in haha.

    It's not unusual to see a security guard or armored truck guard with a revolver, but it's getting awfully rare for a cop around here. I was told that the last Madison cop to carry a revolver retired quite a few years ago.

    One of the advantages of small town cop shops is the absence of department policy and its standardization. The officers may be allowed to carry what they like. Unfortunately both my cops think this Fallujah as they waddle and clank, burdened by paramilitary accoutrements.
