Police: Women scream, yell, throw flower pots during disturbance

A Madison woman will be cited for disorderly conduct for her involvement in a fight with another woman on the east side early Wednesday morning, police said.

Madison police were sent to the 5000 block of Camden Road just before 1 a.m. for reports of a disturbance possibly involving a gun, according to a release.

Officers arrived and said the gun may have been taken from the scene, officials said.

Officers on the way to the scene found a blue vehicle a short distance away that matched the description of a potential suspect vehicle, according to the release.

Police spoke with Daviette Dykinga, 32, of Madison, who said she was inside the Camden Road apartment, officials said. Dykinga said she was abruptly woken up and told she needed to leave immediately by the 48-year-old female resident.

Dykinga told police she tried to leave, but discovered that her keys and money had been taken from her purse.

Dykinga got into an argument with the 48-year-old woman, during which shirt collars were grabbed and a television and table were knocked over, according to the release. Several people told police Dykinga was screaming and yelling expletives as the 48-year-old continued to tell her to leave.

Officers at the scene found several flower pots and plants that had been thrown down the stairwell landing at the residences, authorities said.

Dykinga eventually left, kicking several walls on her way out, according to the release.

Dykinga will be cited for disorderly conduct, police said. After talking with Rory McDowell, 38, of Madison, during the incident, police discovered numerous warrants for his arrest, and he was taken into custody on those charges. McDowell was wanted on charges of criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct and unlawful use of a telephone.

Police said no weapon was found during the investigation.
