The report said that after exchanging words, Holmes threw a bottle of water inside the car and on the teen.

The two women have had a sordid past, and the victim told police she felt Holmes was looking for a reason to fight her.

Police took Holmes into custody. She was taken to Dane County Jail on charges of obstructing an officer and battery.
