Fight (In Progress)

Incident Date

300 block South Park Street


Ratonda D. Holmes, 23-year-old female of Sun Prairie, WI
CHARGES: Resisting/Obstructing An Officer, Battery, Warrant (Winnebago County - Theft)


19-year-old female of Madison, WI


On 8/17/2013, a Madison Police Officer attempted to deal with a disturbance involving at least two females, at a gas station near the 300 block of South Park Street.  Additional officers arrived, and interviewed the 19-year-old female who stated she pulled into the gas station, and was waiting on an available gas pump.  Suddenly Ratonda Holmes approached the victim's car, and confronted her.  The encounter began first with words back and forth, and Holmes proceeded to throw a bottle of water inside the car and on the victim! 

These two individuals have had a sordid past, and the victim felt Holmes was looking for another reason to fight her.  The victim was punched repeatedly by Holmes until the two were separated by an uninvolved party.  Police sorted out all of the details, and took Holmes into custody, after she claimed no involvement in any fight, and misrepresented her identity to officers.  This police interaction also unveiled an outstanding Winnebago County Warrant for theft, and Holmes was conveyed to the Dane County Jail on charges listed.
