Henderson Darby, 34, of Zion.

Sheriff’s officials say a Zion man has been arrested for punching a child family member in the face during an argument at a residence near Gurnee.

Henderson Darby, 34, of Zion, was charged with two counts of misdemeanor domestic battery.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded on February 1 to the 36500 block of North Grandwood Drive in unincorporated Gurnee for a domestic battery call at a residence.

Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that Darby was on the phone with a teenage family member and got into an argument.

Darby, who lives at a different home, drove to the teen’s home and confronted him, Covelli said.

During the argument, Darby punched the child in the face and fled in his vehicle, Covelli said.

Prosecutors said the child’s mother intervened and called 911.

The teen was evaluated by paramedics at the scene.

Sheriff’s deputies were unable to locate Darby and they obtained an arrest warrant for him that month.

A Lake County judge set bond on the warrants at $35,000. Darby was arrested on June 21 on the warrant.

Lake County Judge George Pappas ordered Darby held on a $25,000 bond. He has since been released from the Lake County Jail.

Dary has pleaded not guilty to his charges and is scheduled to appear in court again on August 16 for a pre-trial hearing.
