Round Lake Man Arrested After Reportedly Punching Sheriff’s Deputy

(Ingleside, IL)  A Round Lake area man is behind bars for reportedly punching a Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy. Officials say Carlos Ambriz-Abrego was seen weaving into the wrong lanes of traffic on Tuesday afternoon in the Ingleside area. When a deputy arrived on scene, the 50-year-old was asleep behind the wheel, but sped off as the deputy attempted to make contact with him. Eventually Ambriz-Abrego pulled over, but refused to exit his vehicle, and allegedly punched the female Sheriff’s officer twice in the face. She was able to get him into custody despite the attack. The suspect now faces charges including aggravated battery to a peace officer and resisting arrest. Bond has been set at 200-thousand-dollars, with a court date set for December 8th.
