Homesky was later located at another residence and taken into custody for substantial battery.
She was transported to the Cumberland Hospital for abrasions to her face and elbow and remains on a $2500 signature bond. 
Homesky is scheduled to appear next week at a preliminary hearing in Barron County Circuit Court.
