Defendant fights with Lake County deputies after guilty verdict
A defendant in a drug case attacked a deputy and tried to escape from a Lake County courtroom but was captured before he could flee, authorities said Friday.
Keevan Fullwiley, 35, of the 2300 block of 33rd Street in Zion, was shot with a stun gun and restrained Thursday after he fought with sheriff's deputies at the Waukegan courthouse, Lake County sheriff's police said.
