An investigation of two people smoking marijuana in a yard near Grayslake turned into a brawl ending with a Lake County Sheriff’s Office detective and two sheriff deputies being sent to the hospital.
The group, which included a mother and son and a brother and sister, kicked the detective while he was on the ground.
According to the sheriff’s office on Thursday, Aug. 29, about 1:45 p.m. on the 17300 block of West Dartmoor Drive, a detective was investigating a report of drug dealing when he spotted two people smoking marijuana in a backyard. He approached them and attempted to take one into custody when Michael Musson, 19, allegedly got him in a headlock. While the detective was on the ground, three other people punched and kicked him, witnesses told deputies later during the investigation.
He was finally able to call for back-up. The two deputies that responded also were punched and kicked.
All three officers were treated and released at Advocate Condell Medical Center, Libertyville. Musson also was taken to Advocate Condell after he was pepper sprayed. He was also treated and released.
Musson of the 17300 block of Dartmoor Drive, unincorporated Grayslake, is being held without bond on two charges of felony aggravated battery to a peace officer, two counts of resisting arrest and obstruction of justice.
