Lawrence Co. State's Attorney Seeks Protective Order from Deputy
The Lawrence County, Illinois State's Attorney has filed a protective order against a Lawrence County Sheriff's deputy.
State's Attorney Chris Quick alleges Deputy Dennis York entered his office Tuesday and began screaming about a case pending in Lawrence County Court.
The report says Quick asked him to leave but York refused.
Quick then tried to shut and lock the door on York, however the deputy allegedly forced it open -- hitting Quick's hand with the door and causing minor injuries.
The report also says York threatened to arrest Quick.
A report says Quick then called 911 and another deputy -- Trent Masterson -- came and escorted York from the Building.
Illinois State Police are investigating the incident.
The protective order states York may have no contact with Quick, must stay at least 1,000 feet away from him at all times, cannot enter the Lawrence County Courthouse and cannot possess a Firearm Owner's Identification Card or purchase firearms.
A hearing on the case is set for April 15th in Lawrence County Court.
