Carmi Police Break Up Fight Wednesday morning; Man Charged with Domestic Battery

Carmi Police were called to break up what’s described as “a large fight” Wednesday morning.  Officers were dispatched to the 700 block of Sycamore just after 11am in response to a report of a fight in progress with an alleged large number of combatants.  20 year old Kane Highwood, who resides at a Summit Street apartment, was taken into custody and is being charged with domestic battery.  Highwood allegedly struck an 18 year old female with a metal object and a purse.  Highwood was arrested and taken to the White County Jail where he remains behind bars awaiting a bond amount set by a judge.  Online records indicate he’ll have a bail review on Monday in front of Judge Webb with formal arraignment set for June 3rd.  No word on the condition of the 18 year old female.
