Blue Badger Bar fight

A bystander removed a gun from Colten Rupp's back during an altercation at the Blue Badger Bar in Yorkville and placed it behind the bar, witnesses told deputies, according to a Racine County Sheriff's Office report.

YORKVILLE — A bar fight that broke out Tuesday night at the Blue Badger Bar led to two men spending the night in jail.

According to the Racine County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to the bar, located at 717 Sylvania Ave., Yorkville, at about 10:30 p.m. for an active fight. While en route, deputies were informed that one subject may have a gun and the other may have a knife.

When deputies arrived, they ordered the suspects to the ground at gunpoint. The suspects complied. They were later identified as Kristopher Doyle Haynes, a 44-year-old from Bellefontaine, Ohio, and Colten Rupp, a 32-year-old from Waupun.

As a result of the fight, according to the Racine County District Attorney’s Office, Rupp’s sinus cavity was ruptured.

A criminal complaint states that Haynes became upset when another man told him he was “acting like a girl.”

Witnesses alleged that no weapons were ever displayed, according to the release. A bystander removed a gun from Rupp’s back during the altercation and placed it behind the bar, witnesses told deputies, according to a report.

Two men who identified themselves as Dre Farmer and Tone Bone watched the scene on Clairmont Street. Both agreed the violence has to stop. Farmer said Racine is "just getting more and more violent." Bone said we need "better communities for the kids." Farmer agreed, saying, "We need safe neighborhoods for kids .... and adults, too."

Haynes and Rupp were placed under arrest and taken to Racine County Jail. While in custody, Haynes allegedly slammed himself into the door of the squad car, causing $2,500 in damage, and told a deputy he “was going to whip his (expletives).” Haynes also allegedly spit on a deputy three times.

While reviewing video footage, deputies observed that while Haynes had Rupp in a headlock, Rupp removed a knife from his pocket and flicked it open, the release said. A bystander allegedly took the knife and gun from Rupp and placed them behind the bar.

On Thursday, charges were filed against Haynes, but not Rupp.

Haynes was given a $5,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Thursday. A preliminary hearing is set for Oct. 14 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.

He faces three felony counts of throwing/discharging bodily fluids at a public safety worker and a felony count of substantial battery, as well as misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property, resisting an officer and disorderly conduct.
