Rockford Scanner™: Fight At A Rockford Business, 1 Person Injured





 

Caution Graphic Content in the link, WATCH THE VIDEO OF THE FIGHT AND BOUNCER KNOCKED OUT COLD AT https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=CnanC_1568083912&p=1

Update from a source:  A female customer was asked to leave by the bouncer, because she was allegedly being disorderly.  The bouncer was attempting to  escort her out.  She was refusing to leave and hit the bouncer a couple of times. The bouncer then pushed her away. Several men saw the incident and thought the bouncer was hitting the woman and stepped in to intervene and began to beat on the bouncer.  Then several others began to fight, some to protect the bouncer, and others to hurt the bouncer.  No weapons were involved.  One person was transported to the E.R. sounds like non life threatening injuries.   RPD has yet to confirm this.

Note: This was an active scene when I filmed this. So I was only able to film from one location. I was filming the police, and Tavern On Clark was in the background of me filming the police at the scene.  Some people have chose not read this article and just watch the video and  automatically assumed Tavern On Clark was involved. (since they have chose not to read and only watch the video) since it was in the background in the video of me filming the police at this scene. Tavern on Clark was NOT involved. It was an active scene and I was limited on where I could film from, and it just happened to be in the background as I filmed the police. 


Shortly after 2 am this morning several emergency personnel from the Rockford Police and Fire Departments responded to the Tiger Tails on Clark. 

Initial reports are saying there was a large fight out in the parking lot of the business. 

At least 4 people were detained by police.
Unknown if anyone was arrested.   

1 Person was knocked unconscious, and was transported to a local E.R.  

No other information is available at this time.

Rockford Scanner™: Scene Involving The US Marshalls in Rockford, Possible Shooting




RS Source

UPDATE:

(AP) — A man suspected of fatally shooting a sheriff’s deputy and wounding a woman at an Illinois hotel was taken into custody Thursday after an hourslong standoff that began when he crashed his vehicle along an interstate highway, authorities said.

Floyd E. Brown, 39, was arrested hours after the crash in central Illinois, State Trooper Sean Ramsey said. Officers employed flash grenades to disable Brown after trying for hours to negotiate with him to surrender, police said.

Brown, of Springfield, was taken to a hospital to be treated for several injuries. It wasn’t immediately known what caused the injuries, Ramsey said.

Brown is accused of fatally shooting 35-year-old Deputy Jacob Keltner, a 12 ½-year veteran of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office in northern Illinois. Keltner was pronounced dead at a hospital several hours after he was shot, spokesman David Dezane said.

Police said a 25-year-old woman described as an acquaintance of Brown suffered injuries that weren’t life-threatening after being hit with one of Brown’s rounds. She was treated at a hospital and released.

No shots were fired by law enforcement during the incident, authorities said.

The shootings happened Thursday morning at a hotel as a U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force tried to serve Brown with an arrest warrant for burglary and parole violation charges. Brown fled the hotel in Rockford in Winnebago County, about 80 miles (129 kilometers) northwest of Chicago, and traveled about 170 miles (274 kilometers) to Logan County in central Illinois, police said.

Prosecutors in Winnebago County in northern Illinois initially issued a warrant with $5 million bond against Brown for attempted murder. State’s Attorney Marilyn Hite Ross said the charge was upgraded to first-degree murder after Keltner died. A spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office said Brown also will face a federal murder charge in the death of the deputy, who was assisting federal law enforcement when he was shot.

McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim called Keltner a “great guy” whose father and brother serve in law enforcement in suburban Chicago.

“Jake was a fine young man who leaves a wife and two young children,” Prim said. “We are going to miss him.”

Keltner was the first officer in the department to die in the line of duty in three years, Prim said.

From 2009 to 2019, 73 officers were killed nationwide while attempting to serve warrants, according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, a nonprofit group that keeps track of officer fatalities nationwide.


ILLINOIS STATE POLICE PURSUE AND ARREST WANTED SUSPECT
