A 19-year-old man allegedly disarmed a police officer and tasered the officer with his own taser during an attempted arrest in Round Lake Park, prosecutors said.
Moises Ocana-Manon, 19, of the 100 block of Fairlawn Drive in Round Lake Park, was charged with aggravated battery of a peace officer, aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, domestic battery and resisting a peace officer.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Dino Katris said during a bond hearing that officers were called to a residence in Round Lake Park for a domestic battery call on Sunday.
The grandfather of Ocana-Manon reported that his grandson pushed him.
The grandmother told officers she witnessed Ocana-Manon push her husband and act in an aggressive manner, Katris said.
Officers observed the victim to have red marks on him.
Officers attempted to arrest Ocana-Manon for the battery but he resisted arrest.
Katris said Ocana-Manon grabbed a police officer’s taser and discharged the taser, hitting the officer in the chest.
Police were eventually able to take the man into custody.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Ocana-Manon held on a $200,000 bond.
Ocana-Manon has been released from the Lake County Jail after posting $20,000 cash, court records show.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled in the case for July 13.
