JS Online Excerpt:
Bradley felt Prosser "was attacking the chief justice," the source said. Before leaving, Prosser "put his hands around her neck in what (Bradley) described as a chokehold," the source said.
"He did not exert any pressure, but his hands were around her neck," the source said.
The source said the act "was in no way playful."
Prosser was not arrested after the incident.
Anonymous newspaper sources are also telling different stories about what occurred. According to at least one, Bradley charged Prosser, who raised his hands to defend himself and made contact with her neck.
On Saturday, Bradley disputed those versions as "spin."
Wisconsin Watch Excerpt:
* UPDATE *
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported late Saturday that Justice Bradley has affirmed that a physical altercation took place and disputed the assertions of others that the contact was incidental.
“The facts are that I was demanding that he get out of my office and he put his hands around my neck in anger in a chokehold,” Bradley told the Journal Sentinel.
And in response to the conflicting interpretation offered by unnamed sources, that Prosser put up his hands defensively as she rushed toward him, Bradley told the paper: “You can try to spin those facts and try to make it sound like I ran up to him and threw my neck into his hands, but that’s only spin.”
Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs told WPR he would issue a statement Monday.
