On August 25, 2019 at approximately 6:16 A.M., an Illinois State Trooper was dispatched to a possible domestic incident on I-57 southbound at milepost 313. The trooper arrived on scene and observed a pedestrian, Darrell Catchings, walking southbound on the interstate. A subsequent search of Catchings revealed two loaded handguns. Catchings attempted to resist the trooper but was ultimately placed under arrest. Catchings was transported to the Kankakee County Jail for processing. Catchings was charged with Unlawful Use/Possession of a Weapon by a Felon, Resisting/Obstructing a Police Officer, and Aggravated Battery (Use of a Deadly Weapon).
