State Rep. Brett Hulsey, D-Madison, pleaded no contest earlier this month on a charge of municipal disorderly conduct after an altercation with a 9-year-old boy at Spring Harbor Beach that left the child’s parents feeling “uncomfortable.”
According Madison police, on July 4 Hulsey rode his bike to the beach, located a mile from his home, and entered the water for a swim. Witnesses told police the representative then engaged in “horseplay” with the boy and knocked him off his flotation device. He later took pictures of the boy, according to family members of the child, the report said.
