Police Blotter (Feb. 1, 2019)

PAXTON — The Paxton Police Department released the following list of recent activity:

➜ Nathan N. Steinmeyer, 27, of Paxton, was arrested for a violation of bail bond and resisting a police officer on Monday, Jan. 28. The arrest stemmed from Steinmeyer’s alleged contact with a victim of a previous aggravated domestic battery case against Steinmeyer. On Friday, Jan. 25, Paxton police received a report that Steinmeyer was having contact with the domestic battery victim — which constitutes a violation of the conditions of his bond. Later that day, around 3:28 p.m., Paxton police saw the two together in a vehicle at the intersection of Center and Taft streets. When police got behind their vehicle, Steinmeyer allegedly exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Around 11:39 a.m. Monday, Jan. 28, Paxton police, with the assistance of Illinois Department of Corrections officers, went to Steinmeyer’s residence in Paxton in an attempt to locate him. After they found Steinmeyer at the home, he allegedly again fled on foot. However, the parolee was soon apprehended and taken into custody.

➜ No injuries were reported and no tickets were issued following a two-vehicle accident at 3:05 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at the intersection of Orleans and Union streets. The accident occurred when Brock S. Niebuhr, 34, of Paxton, was driving a 2014 Ford F-150 north on Union Street and his truck was struck in its rear, passenger-side quarter panel by a westbound 2016 Honda driven by James A. Johnson, 43, of Rantoul. The collision sent the truck sliding into a utility pole owned by Ameren Illinois, breaking the pole.

➜ Erin N. Shaw, 38, of Rantoul, was arrested for numerous charges during a traffic stop at 2:26 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 23, at the intersection of U.S. 45 and Ford County Road 200 North, just south of Paxton. Paxton police assisted the Ford County Sheriff’s Office on the traffic stop.
