Man with history of fighting with officers is charged after a similar event, and more

These arrests were taken from Will County Sheriff’s Police reports released May 9 and information from the Will County Adult Detention Facility and Will County Circuit Clerk’s Office.

Public Violence

  • A 29-year-old Joliet man was charged May 3 with aggravated battery to a peace officer and one count of resisting a correctional officer after he allegedly began shouting at correctional officers and became physically aggressive towards them. The resident of the 1300 block of Dearborn Street was being held in the Adult Detention Facility in lieu of $50,000 bail on two counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer, one count of intentionally damaging property and one count of reckless conduct stemming from a July 2011 traffic stop in Joliet. In November 2008 the man was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to an amended charge of attempted aggravated battery to a peace officer in Joliet.


  • Sheriff’s Police arrested a 21-year-old Joliet man May 9 for possession of burglary tools. The resident of the 3800 block of Thoroughbred Lane had been free on bail in connection with a charge alleging one count of criminal trespass to a residence with someone present and one count of theft on March 10 at a Joliet home southwest of the intersection of Renwick and Gaylord roads. He is scheduled to appear in court June 4 on both charges.
  • Assorted tools, a go-kart, and an air compressor were reported taken May 3 from a detached residential garage on the 300 block of White Avenue.
  • A mountain bike, Huffy-brand bike, push mower, and weed whacker were reported taken May 1 from a detached residential garage on the 100 block of Schorie Avenue.
  • The interior of a utility-contracting business on the 1900 block of East Cass was reportedly flooded after intruders removed copper water pipes. Investigators said entry was made through the glass front door. That report followed a Feb. 9 complaint of the theft of a 5000-foot spool of copper wire with a replacement value of $4,500 and a 5,000-foot spool of plastic tubing with a replacement value of $14,000 from a secured lot at the business.

Criminal Damage to Property

  • Eight BB holes in the siding and one BB hole in the front window were reported May 5 at a home on the 400 block of Mohawk Street.


  • A 40-year-old Joliet woman from the 1100 block of Parkwood Drive was arrested May 2 for DUI, leaving a crash scene and failure to reduce speed to avoid a collision during a police contact at Schorie Avenue and Washington Street. She is scheduled to be arraigned on June 7.
