[ARCHIVED] Sheriff’s Warrants Team Apprehend Wanted Kenosha Man After Barricading Himself in Apartment


On January 25, 2018, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team and U.S. Marshals Service - Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force (USMS-GLRFTF) apprehended Antonio D. Summers of the 1400 block of 30th Avenue, Kenosha, WI.  Summers had an active felony arrest warrant for Unlawful Use of a Weapon by a Felon and Aggravated Battery to a Peace Officer (original charges stem from a Waukegan Police Department investigation).  The bond amount on the warrant was $250,000.00.

On January 25th, members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Warrants Team developed information indicating Summers was at his residence.  Warrants Deputies located Summers inside his apartment.  Summers initially attempted to escape out a second story window, but stopped the effort when he saw additional Warrants Deputies outside the apartment building.  Summers then barricaded himself in his bedroom, telling Warrants Deputies he was armed with a firearm.

Several members of the Warrants Team are certified Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Members.  Utilizing their CIT crisis-communication skills, after 45 minutes of deescalating conversation, Summers surrendered to the Warrants Team.  No firearm was located.

Summers was transported to the Kenosha County Jail where he remains held pending extradition to Lake County.

Sheriff Curran reminds the public the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
