SYCAMORE – A Montgomery man is being held in the DeKalb County Jail on $5,000 bond after allegedly abusing his ex-girlfriend.
Michael L. Shaddix, 41, of the 100 block of Heathgate Road, has been charged with domestic battery and, if convicted, could face up to a year in jail.
Police said in court records his ex-girlfriend had texted him Feb. 8 telling him she’d drop off his stuff at his mother’s house, where he was living. However, records report that Shaddix showed up, barged through the door and slammed her into corner in the kitchen so hard it damaged the blinds and injured her forearm.
The records show he fled when she called police, who pulled him over shortly afterward – at which point he denied knowing anything about the altercation.
At the Sandwich Police Department, he admitted to pushing her but nothing more, the records show. The victim said in the records her son witnessed the alleged abuse.
Shaddix had been sentenced in August 2014 to seven years in prison for theft and also was ordered to be on parole three years thereafter.
Judge Ron Matekaitis set bond at $5,000 Tuesday, records show. If Shaddix posts $500 to be released on bail, he’ll be placed on electronic home monitoring.
Shaddix is due back in
DeKalb County court at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 21.
