A meteor falls.
This was nothing criminal, just a Madison squad in the right place at the right time overnight Wednesday. Just before midnight the squad's camera caught a fleeting glimpse of the falling rock while the car was parked at Westgate Mall.
The Madison Police Department posted the an incident report about the video on its website.
