Suspect husband charged with weapons violation
BOLINGBROOK - Months after naming a former suburban Illinois police sergeant as a suspect in his wife’s disappearance, authorities issued a warrant yesterday for his arrest on an unrelated weapons charge, officials said.
Drew Peterson surrendered shortly after the warrant was issued.
The gun, a semiautomatic assault rifle, was one of 11 seized during a search of Mr. Peterson’s home Nov. 1, shortly after Stacy Peterson disappeared in late October, said his attorney, Joel Brodsky. He said police claimed the rifle barrel was too short under Illinois law.
Mr. Brodsky said Mr. Peterson was still a police officer when the weapon was seized and that officers are exempt from the length provision of the law.
Customer wrestles deer to protect son
QUAKERTOWN - A disoriented deer smashed its way into a suburban hair salon, and a customer wrestled with the animal to keep it from ramming into his 11-year-old son or other youngsters.
“I’m a father. I wasn’t going to let anything happen to those kids,” Randy Goepfert said after Tuesday’s confrontation.
The deer “was charging right at my son, so I decked him,” Mr. Goepfert said. He grabbed the buck by the neck and slammed it to the floor, then climbed on top and began choking the animal, hoping to keep it at bay until authorities arrived.
The deer broke loose, and Mr. Goepfert chased it into a backroom and barricaded the door with chairs.
The deer had a broken jaw and cuts on its neck and had to be euthanized, officials said.
