35 year old Devin D. Fair of Beardstown and 41 year old Jason W Wiltfong of Ashland were arrested in a traffic stop on Illinois Route 125 near Sugar Grove Road early Sunday morning.

According to Sheriff Devron Ohrn, during an investigation and questioning at the residence, Brown began to actively attack a deputy. After a brief fight ensued, deputies were able to gain control of Brown and place him under arrest. Ohrn says that several charges stem from Brown’s striking of multiple officers during the struggle.
