Teen injured after running from deputy through cluttered house…with ball bat

WHITE CO., Ill. - A teen in Maunie injured himself running from sheriff’s authorities late last week, apparently not wanting to be taken into custody on the handful of warrants a deputy came to the door holding.

The sheriff’s report outlined the incident, which occurred Friday, May 11, at approximately 8:42 a.m.

Deputy Randy Graves made the report, stating that he, Sheriff Doug Maier and Sgt. Craig Poole on that day went to the residence of Jacob DeLong, 18, on the 200 block of Sheridan Street in Maunie, on the river in south White County to serve the warrants, three in all.

Maier and Poole went to the side and back doors of the residence, while Graves went to the front door. Graves reported that next to the front door to the right was DeLong’s bedroom, and the window had plastic over it. However, the plastic had a small hole in it, and through that, Graves could see into the bedroom, where he observed DeLong laying in bed.

So Graves said “Jake!” a couple of times and DeLong responded with “Who is it?”

Graves didn’t tell DeLong who he was, and finally, the teen got out of bed and came to the front door.

But when he opened the front door, DeLong had a ball bat in his hand.

“When Jacob saw me, he tried to slam the door in my face,” Graves reported. “Jacob then took off running through the house.”

Graves said that as DeLong was running through the living room, he fell on the multiple piles of clutter in the room. He was then able to be apprehended and was placed in handcuffs without further incident.

The report indicated that the warrants were for two juvenile cases, one from 2016 and one from 2017, and one adult misdemeanor warrant for Resisting a Police Officer, which carried with it a cash bond of $150.

Shortly thereafter, the trio of officers traveled to an address on the 200 block of Emma Street in Maunie to serve an arrest warrant on Joshua C. Frashier, 36.

The officers arrived at the location and found a family member/resident of the house, Matt Frashier, in the back yard area.

The officers inquired if Joshua was present.

“Matt advised ‘Not that he knew of,’” Maier said, “which is a typical response given to officers when someone is present but the individual doesn’t want to admit to it.”

So Maier hollered “Joshua!” and got a response of “Yeah?”

The correct Frashier gave himself up to authorities without incident on the arrest warrant; it was not specified in reporting documents what that warrant was about.
