Tyler C. Linder, 28, of North Chicago.

A convicted felon, who is on probation for a gun charge, was arrested after he allegedly tossed a handgun into the grass while police were responding to a domestic in Vernon Hills.

Tyler C. Linder, 28, of North Chicago, was charged with felon in possession of a firearm.

The Vernon Hills Police Department responded on Friday to a call of a domestic disturbance at a residence.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Jason Humke said there was an argument between Linder and a woman.

The woman reported that Linder had a gun and officers recovered a 9mm handgun, Humke said.

The pistol was in the grass nearby and Linder was taken into custody.

Linder admitted to officers that he possessed the gun and tossed it because he was on probation, Humke said.

Court records show that Linder was charged in September 2021 with felon in possession of a weapon and aggravated unlawful use of a weapon for an incident in Gurnee on September 6, 2021.

Linder pleaded guilty to aggravated unlawful use of a weapon in exchange for his other charge being dismissed.

He was sentenced in November to six months of periodic imprisonment, 24 months of probation and 150 hours of public service.

Prosecutors filed a petition to revoke his probation in February but withdrew that petition early last month. It is presumed prosecutors will seek to revoke his probation again in that case.

Lake County Judge Janelle Christensen ordered Linder held on a $150,000 bond following his latest arrest.

Linder remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $15,000 cash in order to be released.
