CHICO, Calif. – A Chico man was arrested Thursday afternoon after throwing his feces at an officer who was attempting to contact the man due to reports of elder abuse.

Around 4 p.m., Chico Police Dispatch Center said they received a 911 call from a motorist who saw a man hitting a woman in a vehicle as they drove in east Chico. Officers were unable to locate the vehicle at that time.

A short time later, officers responded to an address on Robailey Drive in Chico. The victim of the earlier abuse called to report her son, 44-year-old Madison Sall, had struck her several times on the head. She said Sall was outside the house, breaking windows to get in.

Officers arrived at the home and contacted Sall outside the house. Sall, who was in a wheelchair, had defecated himself and threw his feces at officers who were trying to speak to him.

Sall then spit on another officer, striking him on the face, according to police. Officers continued to try and engage Sall in conversation. However, he then charged at one of the officers who successfully deployed his pepper spray at Sall.

Chico Fire and medics were staged around the corner of the scene and immediately came to decontaminate Sall from the effects of the pepper spray. He was transported to Enloe Medical Center for medical clearance. Then he was booked into the Butte County Jail, police said.
