Two Teens Attack Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies During Arrest in Unincorporated Antioch

... #ad▼

Two Lake County sheriff’s deputies were attacked as they attempted to arrest a juvenile domestic battery offender in unincorporated Antioch southwest of Antioch Sunday afternoon.

Lake County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched about 3:30 p.m. Sunday, January 28, 2024 to a report of a domestic battery in progress in the block of 25000 Grass Lake Road in unincorporated Antioch. After arriving and investigating, the sheriff’s deputies determined a 17-year-old boy punched a family member in the face multiple times.

The sheriff’s deputies asked the boy to step outside the home, informed him he was under arrest, and began placing his arms behind his back when a 17-year-old girl began interfering with the arrest. Allegedly, the girl grabbed at the belt and baton of one of the deputies in an attempt to stop the deputy from arresting her friend. The deputy was able to push her away briefly, but she again came and started grabbing at the deputy. While she was interfering with the arrest, the boy allegedly bit the arm of the other deputy, who was attempting to take him into custody.

After biting the deputy, the boy broke free and ran before being tackled by the second deputy. After being tackled, the boy continued resisting and was able to punch the deputy who tackled him in the face two times. The deputy, who was originally bitten by the boy, was able to place the girl into custody after she attempted to grab his electronic control device (Taser). The two deputies were then able to place the boy in handcuffs; however, he was able to kick one of the deputies in the neck.

Both juveniles were transported to the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division. Sheriff’s detectives petitioned/referred the boy to juvenile court on the charges of four counts of Aggravated Battery to a Peace Officer, four counts of Resisting Arrest Causing Injury, and Aggravated Domestic Battery. Petitions/referrals are pending on the girl.

Neither deputy was injured during the struggle.

All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
