A 38-year-old Madison man was knocked unconscious, suffered a fractured rib, broken and loose teeth and facial cuts following a Memorial Day barbecue that turned ugly, according to the Madison Police Department.
Police were called to the party at about 3:30 p.m. at a residence on South Fair Oaks Avenue on Madison's east side.
The victim said, Juan M. Moreno-Flores, 42, of Madison, who he knows, started making crude remarks about women during the cookout. The victim objected to the banter, which he said prompted the attack.
Police said the victim was pushed to the ground and Moreno-Flores put his foot on the victim's throat so that he couldn't breathe.
The victim said Moreno-Flores pulled on the back of his hair five or six times, slamming his face into the ground.
Moreno-Flores faces a charge of substantial battery, police said.
