MADISON, Wis. - A K-9 unit tracked a man accused of domestic violence to a bathroom a mile and a half away from a crime scene, according to a news release from the Madison Police Department officials.

Antwon J. Braxton, 28, of Madison, was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct with a new domestic enhancer, bail jumping and on warrants, according to the release.

Braxton tried to run from police Sunday around 7:45 a.m. after police were called to a home on Brentwood Parkway for what a woman described as a "life-or-death matter," officials said.

Officers were familiar with a long history of domestic altercations between the victim and Braxton, who drove away from the home before officers arrived and parked the car he was driving on Falmouth Court, according to the release.

He then took off on foot and eluded officers, officials said. Police eventually found Braxton after K-9 Krahnie and Officer Jim Donnell tracked him to a gas station on Shroeder Road, where Braxton was hiding in the bathroom, officials said.

Braxton was taken into custody without incident, according to the release.
