A Colorado woman was arrested Saturday for battery at a Carthage College football game. Kenosha Police were summoned at 3:49 pm on Saturday to a report of a battery. Witnesses say 52-year-old Courtney L. Ludwig was taunting the opposing team during the game. After the game, she was fired up and incessantly ringing a cowbell.
A player from the opposing team, Carrol College, approached the woman and asked her to stop taunting his team. She then hit the college-aged student with the cowbell. Moments after, police were called. Kenosha Police gave the woman a break and only cited her. They could have asked the Kenosha County DA to charge her criminally.
According to a witness who was present, the college’s new athletic director, Ryan Kane witnessed the battery, but didn’t take action or attempt to intervene in any way. The witness thinks that Kane should have tried to deescalate the situation.
KCE emailed Kane early Tuesday and didn’t receive a return email.
It is unknown if the woman received any direction from Christopher Walken before the battery occurred.
