May 14, 2018
For Immediate Release
On Saturday, May 12, 2018 at 4:15pm, Lake Delton Police were dispatched to a report of a disturbance at Mount Olympus Water and Theme Park, located in the 1800 block of Wisconsin Dells Pkwy (Hwy 12). The report to Sauk County Dispatch was of several individuals involved in a physical altercation. Upon police arrival, the fighting had stopped.
The investigating officers questioned several involved parties at the scene. Police additionally acquired video footage taken by bystanders on cellular devices during the fight. That footage was also posted to social media. The video footage did depict a rather violent encounter between several people.
Police learned that the fight started over something as ridiculous as a person taking a chair from a different group’s table within the water park. Police will continue to investigate the event, which will include the comparison of the video footage to the statements made during the field interviews conducted by police.
This is an ongoing investigation and further information will not be available at this time. Lake Delton Police Department anticipates charges in the future. Lake Delton Police Chief Daniel Hardman said he is disappointed that cooler heads did not prevail in this scenario and that the responsible parties allowed this event to escalate to such an extreme level inside a family oriented business. The Wisconsin Dells area is a family centered community and this event is not indicative of what to expect in our community.
Lake Delton Police were assisted at the scene by Mount Olympus Staff and Dells-Delton EMS.
