A man and a boy, who fought in the middle of the street, caused a traffic jam at 3:57 p.m. Monday in front of Jefferson Lighthouse School on West Sixth St.

Donnell Claybrook, 17, of Racine, and Antonio Milton, 25, of Chicago, were charged Tuesday by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with disorderly conduct.

If convicted, both face up to 90 days in jail and/or could be fined up to $1,000.

According to the criminal complaint, a Racine Police officer noticed a large traffic jam that caused drivers in both lanes of traffic to stop. Flagged down by several people, the officer was told that two were in a verbal argument in the middle of the street. The officer believed that the two were about to start hitting one another and he called for back-up, but didn’t get out of his car.

To insure the officer’s safety, the officer blocked them in and he waited for backup to arrive.

“The two exchanged extremely loud vulgarities toward one another,” according to the complaint. “Both of them were loud, boisterous and causing a large disturbance in the neighborhood.”

Seeing the police officer, Milton yelled obscenities and said he didn’t care about the police presence. Walking away from the officer, Claybrook got out of his car and took him into custody. Milton also fled, but he was later found in the 200 block of Harrison St.

Claybrook is also being held on a probation violation and bail jumping.

A cash bond of $150 was set for Claybrook, and a $500 signature bond was set for Milton. A pre-trial conference will be held for 3:15 p.m. June 23.
