Madison Police arrested two Branford family members following a fight just after midnight Saturday in the lobby of the Madison Beach Hotel. Here is the police report:
On Oct. 12, 12:29 a.m., the Madison Police Department received multiple 911 calls regarding a fight/brawl in the lobby at the Madison Beach Hotel, 94 West Wharf Road, Madison. Initial callers stated that as many as 10 individuals may be involved in the fight. Subsequent investigation revealed that the altercation involved individuals from two separate events occurring within the hotel, and specifically, one of the assailants attacked a family member who was present at a separate event.
Due to the size and extent of fight, police officers from both the evening and midnight patrol shifts; nine officers in total, were dispatched to the scene to control the situation. Further, due to the non-compliance of one of the assailants, a Madison police officer was forced to deploy his Taser to subdue and arrest that individual.
At least four people sustained injuries and property damage was reported. Everyone involved in the altercation was evaluated by Madison Ambulance personnel and received treatment, or refused treatment for their injuries. No Madison police officers were injured in the altercation.
Ultimately, two individuals were arrested as the initial aggressors in the altercation.
Timothy Verillo, 31, of 38 Wallace Road, Branford was charged with interfering with an officer; breach of peace; threatening in the second degree; and assault in the third degree.
Due to the relationship between Verillo and one of his victims, Verillo was charged under the Connecticut Domestic Violence Laws. Timothy Verillo was released on a $7,500 cash bond and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court, New Haven, Monday.
Julia Verillo, 30, of 38 Wallace Road, Branford, was charged with two counts of assault in the third degree; interfering with an officer; breach of peace; and criminal mischief in the third degree. Julia Verillo was released on a $2,500 surety bond and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court in New Haven Monday.
