Jquery mobile split buttons in ionic

I’m trying to add an info link to the right of a list item so when somebody taps the icon a modal pops up with more information about the list item. JQuery Mobile has a split button feature (http://demos.jquerymobile.com/1.3.2/widgets/listviews/) that is similar to what I want to do. I can’t figure out how to do it in ionic since putting a right icon on a list item must live within an “a” tag. Which means when tapping on the info icon on the right simply takes the href for the entire list item. Any ideas? Thanks much.

You could do something like this
