Rockford Scanner™: Police Arrest A Man For Drugs And Aggravated Battery To A Peace Officer

  • by


Sources sent us a video earlier in the night of a scene that involved several officers and the police using a tazer on a subject. 

The video is pretty graphic, so viewer discretion is advised if you watch it.

It is not known exactly what had happened just prior,  when it started recording.

Family members told us that the man you can hear screaming in the video, was on the phone with a family member when police stopped him.

He remained on the phone, during the traffic stop.  The family members told us everything was going fine, until more officers showed up.
Then “All hell broke loose” said a family member.  Unconfirmed reports said he was being treated at a local hospital.

You can hear in the video the police screaming commands to the subject, just prior to using the tazer.

Police have not released any information yet. They been pretty transparent recently, so there will probably be an update later on today.

Sources told us this is the alleged man in the video, that you can hear screaming is 34 year old  MICHAEL ANTHONY RAY JONES. (Officials have not yet confirmed this. )

According to the Winnebago County Jail website, police arrested him for:


  • 720 ILCS 570.0/401-A-7.5-B-II MFG 200>600 PILLS ECSTASY/ANLG
