A local teenager has been arrested six times in the past year. The Grundy County Sheriff’s Office said Collin Tucker, 19, of Morris allegedly threw hot macaroni and cheese on a 20-year-old female family member and also battered her at a residence in the 1200 block of East Route 6 around 2:15 a.m. on January 6th.

Police officials say the female had a bloody lip, bruises on her arm, and burn marks. After the alleged incident, Tucker fled the area and was arrested a few hours later by the Morris Police Department for domestic battery and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.

In 2018, Tucker was arrested by Grundy County authorities for battery, domestic battery, two times for violating an order of protection and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor. The Grundy County Sheriff’s Department also arrested Tucker after he stole e a 2006 Suzuki RM Z250 from the 7800 block of Susan Street in the early morning hours on May 25th. Four of the arrest were misdemeanors, while the theft was a felony. 

In September of 2018, Tucker pled guilty to three charges as Grundy County State’s Attorney Jason Helland reported to WCSJ at the time.

With this latest domestic battery arrest, Helland explains what his office has filed.

Tucker remains in the Grundy County Jail. More details will be added to this story in the future.
