Illinois Man Avoids Kidnapping Charges

Written by on January 3, 2014 in News

Thursday afternoon the Henry County Sheriff’s Office received a report of a possible kidnapping of a female subject. The caller said the female subject was being abused by a male subject in a white Volvo semi-truck headed into Henry County. Deputies located the vehicle near HyVee Gas in Mt. Pleasant. Upon making contact and attempting to remove the female from the situation, the male subject attempted to prevent deputies from doing so. Denair Byars, 28 of Cicero IL resisted lawful orders from law enforcement and resisted arrest. Byars was eventually taken into custody. The female was uncooperative and did not want charges filed for Byars holding her against her will. Byars was charged with interference with official acts and several Iowa DOT related traffic violations.
