East St. Louis Man Accused Of Driving Into 2 Cops

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) A southwestern Illinois man is accused of driving into two investigators at the cordoned-off scene of an East St. Louis killing.

St. Clair County prosecutors charged 24-year-old Darryl Robinson of East St. Louis with aggravated battery, attempted aggravated battery and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon.

Authorities allege that on July 5, Robinson knowingly drove his vehicle into a secured crime scene of a homicide, nearly hitting East St. Louis police Lt. Marion Riddle and Illinois State Police Sgt. Mark Doiron. Robinson then allegedly resisted being pulled from his car and drove off, hitting Riddle and Doiron. Those officers sustained minor injuries.

Robinson was later arrested in Centreville.

Online court records don’t show whether he has an attorney. He does not have a listed home telephone number.
