Address825 Hughes Place (South Police District Station)
Suspect(s)Alexia Hunter, 19 year old Madison woman
16 year old male of Madsion
DetailsTwo people were charged in what appears to be a road rage incident. MPD officers report that both drivers involved in the incident drove to the south district police station to settle the dispute. All parties were still very agitated and officers did a great job de-escalating the ensuing disturbance. After conducting interviews with the very upset drivers, they each were arrested and tentatively charged with second degree recklessly endangering safety.
On Thursday June 28, 2018 at about 7:30 PM, 19 year old Alexia Hunter of Madison told officers she was followed by another car, an SUV, from Pike Drive, onto Greenway Cross, then to Fish Hatchery Road, to West Badger Road and finally on to Hughes Place and the south police station. The car following her was driven by a 16 year old juvenile male also of Madison. The younger driver is alleged to have rammed the back of Hunter's Toyota Rav 4 several times. At one point he pulled alongside Hunter's car and rammed the passenger side door. Hunter told police the teen driver pulled in front of her car and stopped in the roadway. He was starting to take off again when Hunter said she rammed the back of his car. She explained that she was trying to get him to stop. The rear window on the teen's Lincoln Navigator shattered upon impact.
The juvenile driver contends that it was he who was followed from Pike Drive by Hunter. He said that words were exchanged between passengers in the vehicles. He said that the other driver was at fault for damage to his car.
Both vehicles showed significant damage on the front, sides and back. Those involved were known to each other prior to the road rage event and there was obviously a pre-existing dispute. The teen was turned over to the Dane County Juvenile Reception Center while Hunter was booked into the Dane County Jail. Hunter was also booked on an unrelated arrest warrant.
