SYCAMORE – Two of three DeKalb men accused of resisting officers are in the DeKalb County Jail.
Daeshawn D. Wooten, 24, of the 1200 block of Mason Street, has been charged with aggravated assault, aggravated battery of a police officer and resisting a police officer. If convicted of the most serious charge, aggravated battery of a police officer, he could face three to seven years in prison.
Police said in court records that about 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Wooten and Cory J. Kizer were fighting on the front porch of a residence in the 200 block of Park Avenue, and as an officer tried to break it up, Wooten approached the officer with clenched fists.
The records show that as the officer tried to arrest Wooten, he broke free, ran and eventually was arrested in the 200 block of West Lincoln Highway. The records show Wooten kicked an officer in his arm and hip as he was being loaded into the police vehicle.
DeKalb police Cmdr. Bob Redel said both Kizer, of the 1100 block of Sycamore Road, and his brother, Henry, 32, who lives at the site of the incident, were there, and that both were arrested and charged – although while Henry Kizer is in jail on $5,000 bond, Cory Kizer is not in county court records.
Both of the Kizers were charged with resisting a police officer. Cory Kizer also has been charged with battery, while Henry Kizer has an additional charge of aggravated assault.
Chief Judge Robbin Stuckert set Wooten’s bond at $10,000 Monday, and if he posts $1,000 to be released, he’ll be placed on electronic home monitoring.
He’s due back in court at 9 a.m. Nov. 16. Henry Kizer is due back in court at 9 a.m. Thursday.
