Authorities say two men were arrested after they attacked officers and one of them threatened to kill a deputy and his family while police were dispersing a large and unruly crowd near Round Lake.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office responded around 12:10 a.m. Sunday to the 24500 block of West Stub Avenue in unincorporated Round Lake for a report of a large and unruly party.
Sheriff’s deputies arrived and located approximately 100 people at a home, causing a disturbance for the neighbors, according to Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli.
The party hosts had everyone disperse from the home but the guests flooded the neighborhood.
Covelli said they were being unruly in neighboring yards, drinking alcohol in the roadway and blocking traffic with their cars.
Additional sheriff’s deputies and neighboring police officers arrived to assist in dispersing the uncooperative crowd.
Some of the crowd began to leave but some continued to be disruptive and unruly.
Ramon Basurto, 21, of Waukegan, threw a bottle of beer at a sheriff’s deputy, striking the deputy in the shoulder, Covelli said.
He was arrested and transported to the Lake County Jail.
The Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office approved the charge of aggravated battery to a peace officer for Basurto.
A second suspect, Jarvion Allen, 21, of Waukegan, attempted to punch a Round Lake police sergeant and then fled on foot, Covelli said.
Deputies and police officers took him into custody after a brief foot chase.
While being transported to the jail, Allen threatened to come to the deputy’s home and murder the deputy and his family, Covelli said.
The state’s attorney’s office approved charges of aggravated assault on a peace officer and threatening a public official.
Basurto and Allen remain held in the Lake County Jail pending a first appearance court hearing.
