Man with hostage exchanges gunfire at CU drive-thru
MONONA, Wis. (12/9/10)--A man who held another man hostage in a car while trying to withdraw funds from the hostage's account outside a Monona, Wis., credit union Wednesday was injured after ramming a police car and exchanging gunshots with police, said Monona police. The incident occurred at about 1:45 p.m. CT in the drive-thru lane at a branch of Madison-based UW CU (Wisconsin State Journal Madison.com and WXOX.com (Dec. 8). Police confirmed that they received a call from someone inside the credit union about a suspicious vehicle in the drive-thru.

When police arrived, the suspect rammed the police car and a gunfight broke out between the suspect and police. The suspect, the only person hurt, was taken to a hospital with unspecified injuries, and a gun was found in the car, police said.
