A 39-year-old Dwight man is accused of seriously beating a female family member.  

The Dwight Police Department was dispatched to a hotel on East Northbrook for report of a domestic battery around 7:30 p.m. on January 2nd.

Police officials say David Berkey allegedly battered a female several times in the face at the aforementioned location.

The victim was transported to Morris Hospital with serious injuries. After an investigation, Berkey was arrested on a Grundy County warrant by the Grundy County Sheriff’s Department on January 4th.

In October of 2018, Berkey was arrested for domestic battery by the Dwight Police Department and the victim was battered in the face. 

In December of 2018, Grundy County State’s Attorney Jason Helland said Berkey pled guilty to domestic battery, a class A misdemeanor.

Berkey remains in the Grundy County Jail on a $50,000 bond.
