• Gonzalo Rodriguez-Renteria, 26, of the 300 block of Tee Lane in Carpentersville, was arrested on several charges Friday evening, reports said. Authorities allege that he initiated with a police officer and discharged the officer's Taser, which zapped both the officer and Rodriguez-Renteria. Police also say Rodriguez-Renteria then tried to elude capture by running into a house that wasn't his. According to police: Rodriguez-Renteria was walking on Route 25 near Hazard Road when a police officer recognized him and stopped him to arrest him on a pair of outstanding warrants. Rodriguez-Renteria gave the officer a bogus name and tried to run away. The officer caught him and Rodriguez-Renteria tried to break away and take the Taser away from him. Rodriguez-Renteria then fled into a nearby house in the 100 block of Caddy Avenue that had an unlocked door. Police caught him trying to escape from a window and found 3 grams of marijuana on him as well as a drug pipe. Rodriguez-Renteria was charged with aggravated battery to a police officer, aggravated resisting arrest, felony trespass to a residence, unlawful possession of marijuana and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, reports say. The officer was treated at an emergency care center for a strained muscle and is now back on the job, police said. According to the Kane County jail website, Rodriguez-Renteria's bail was set at $320,000. He is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
