Okay, let me ask this question. if you are wanted by the police for a crime, what is the last thing you want to do? Draw attention to yourself! In Rockford, criminal logic is anything but logical.

Take the case of Rockford resident Donte W. Young who was wanted on an outstanding warrant for aggravated domestic battery.

So, if you are wanted, the last thing you want to do is to get the attention of the police. Mr Young had an other idea.

On Friday, June 17th, the Rockford Police Special Operations group was patrolling the 900 block of South Third Street. Police noticed loud music coming from a Chevy Tahoe parked in the street. Police approached the vehicle, the front seat passenger of the vehicle, Donte W. Young, attempted to flee from officers on foot.  A short foot chase ensued and My Young was caught and taken into custody.

Police also found the driver of the vehicle to be Antwaine Chaney to be a previously convicted felon.

So, if you are wanted for serious crimes, do you really want to be blaring loud music from your vehicle with police on patrol?

Rockford Police charged Donte W. Young for aggravated domestic battery warrant and resisting a police officer. Antwaine Chaney was charged with aggravated unlawful use of weapon by a felon, violation of the firearm Owner’s Identification Card and illegal sound amplification.

You can't fix stupid.
