A 22-year-old Racine man with an outstanding warrant for attempted first-degree intentional homicide was arrested Sunday after police were tipped off that he was outside a city residence.
Alondro L. Pratt Jr. was charged Tuesday in Racine County Circuit Court with two felony counts of bail jumping and misdemeanor counts of obstructing an officer, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct.
Pratt, who is in custody, made his initial appearance on the new charges Tuesday afternoon.
The two felonies each carry a fine of $10,000 and six years in prison. The misdemeanors carry a total fine of $21,000 and 21 months in jail.
According to the criminal complaint:
Officers with the Racine Police Department found the defendant sitting in a gold Chrysler and taken into custody. As officers attempted to arrest him, he became very uncooperative and identified himself as someone else. One of the officers on the scene was able to verify Pratt’s identity.
Pratt refused to get into the transport vehicle and began resisting police control. At one point, he also began screaming loudly at police, calling them “a bunch of bitches.”
Court records indicate Pratt was released on bond in the original case, and that a $1,000 cash bond and a $10,000 signature bond were forfeited when he failed to appear for a court appearance in January.
In that case, Pratt was charged with 11 felonies and eight misdemeanors after he was arrested for his role in a shooting in the 400 block of 9th Street in March. Witness statements about that incident conflict over who shot first, but it is known that a gun battle ensued and a white Ford Explorer being driven by Pratt fled westbound down 9th Avenue.

A preliminary hearing has been set for 8:30 a.m. May 30 in front of Racine County Felony Court Mark F. Nielsen.
