[ARCHIVED] Unincorporated Barrington Man Breaks Handcuffs, Attempts Escape After Arrest


On January 1, 2020, at approximately 5:40PM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Shane B. Zillman, 27, of the 28500 block of Chamberlain Drive, Unincorporated Barrington, for driving under the influence of alcohol and driving while his license was suspended.  Zillman was arrested at a park on Shady Lane, Unincorporated Barrington.

Upon arriving at the Lake County Jail, the Sheriff’s Deputy began to remove Zillman from the back seat of his squad car.  After opening the door, Zillman sprang past the deputy and began running southbound on Martin Luther King Jr. Ave in Waukegan.  Zillman freed one of his hands from the handcuffs.  

Zillman refused to stop and the deputy deployed his conductive electrical control device (Taser), striking Zillman.  This caused Zillman to fall and he was taken back into custody.  Zillman was walked back to the Lake County Jail and subsequently charged with:


Criminal Damage to State Supported Property

Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol

Driving While License Suspended

Illegal Transportation of Alcohol

Zillman remains held in the Lake County Jail pending an initial court hearing this morning.  

Closer inspection of the handcuffs revealed Zillman was able to bend the handcuffs, while they held his arms behind his back.  This compromised the integrity of the handcuffs, allowing him to free himself.

All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
