Man wanted for battery against Waukegan cop arrested after barricade situation

Antonio D. Summers

Police arrested a Kenosha man, who was wanted for battery against a Waukegan cop, following a barricade standoff in Kenosha on Thursday.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team and U.S. Marshals arrested Antonio D. Summers, of the 1400 block of 30th Avenue in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Authorities said that Summers had a felony arrest warrant for unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and aggravated battery to a peace officer.

The charges stem from an incident on January 8 when Waukegan police officers responded to a domestic situation and found Summers in a vehicle at the scene. He pushed down an officer and ran away. A gun was recovered from the vehicle Summers was initially sitting in.

On Thursday, police developed information that Summers was at his home in Kenosha.

“Warrants Deputies located Summers inside his apartment. Summers initially attempted to escape out a second story window, but stopped the effort when he saw additional Warrants Deputies outside the apartment building,” the Lake County Sheriff’s Office said.

Officials said that Summers then barricaded himself in his bedroom and told police he was armed with a firearm.

“Several members of the Warrants Team are certified Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Members. Utilizing their CIT crisis-communication skills, after 45 minutes of deescalating conversation, Summers surrendered to the Warrants Team,” the sheriff’s office said.

No firearm was located at the scene. Summers was transported to the Kenosha County Jail where he remains held pending extradition to Lake County.
