Three Racine men have been arrested for fighting Sunday outside a local fitness club, and one of the men is also accused of having a knife during the altercation, according to a press release by the Mount Pleasant Police Department.

Cedrick Ford-Phillips, 20, was arrested for recklessly endangering safety, disorderly conduct, and criminal damage to property. Corey Bizzle,19, was arrested for disorderly conduct, and criminal damage to property. Jeremy Bueno Jr.,17, was arrested for disorderly conduct, battery, and criminal damage to property.

Formal charges have not been issued by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

According to police, Bizzle followed Ford-Phillips while traveling westbound on Washington Ave. and the pulled into the Xperience Fitness parking lot, 5200 Washington Avenue, “to settle an ongoing civil problem.” The three men started fighting, and during the altercation, Ford-Phillips went to his car to get a knife. He confronted the two men with the knife as they got into the car.

Bizzle, who suffered minor injuries to his hand while attempting to damage Ford-Phillips’ vehicle, was treated on scene by rescue personnel from the South Shore Fire Department.

Officers responded to the scene and apprehended Ford-Phillips and Bizzle quickly, but Bueno had fled the area and police found him near Kinzie Ave. and Osterguard.

The three men are currently in custody in the Racine County Jail.
