Five people were arrested and two were injured during a large fight at a rodeo held at Home Run Heaven, 3400 S. Sylvania Ave., at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 7 that took officers from several jurisdictions to break up, according to a press release by the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.

Earlier in the evening, deputies responded to a loud music complaint and spoke to the organizers of a rodeo and concert event, but it was determined that they had a loud noise permit. Two hours later, a man assaulted one of the security guards at the event and when deputies got on scene, there were many fights in progress.

Law enforcement from several jurisdictions responded, including: 10 Racine County Sheriff’s squads, four from Mount Pleasant, two from Sturtevant Police Department and one Wisconsin State Trooper. No law enforcement officers were injured, but two security guards were injured during the fights. Five patrons were arrested and taken to jail.

Afterward, officers responded to a report of a rollover car crash at 8:30 p.m. on Interstate 94 near Four Mile Road in the Town of Raymond that involved one of the parties who attended the rodeo. Alcohol is believed to be a contributing factor, according to officials with the Racine County Sheriff’s Department.
