Man gets jail time, probation for St. Charles struggle

A Zion man who wielded a knife during a February struggle between two St. Charles sisters must go to jail, according to Kane County court records.

Darell M. Hayes, 26, pleaded guilty Thursday to aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and obstructing identification, records show.

Another charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon was reported as dismissed.

Judge John A. Barsanti sentenced Hayes to 124 days in the county jail for the obstruction charge and credited him for 62 days of time served, according to records.

Hayes also received 18 months of probation and 62 days in jail – with credit for 62 days of time served – for the aggravated battery charge, records show.

He was involved in a disturbance in the early morning hours of Feb. 15 in the 200 block of Walnut Drive in St. Charles, police have reported.

The struggle began with an altercation between two sisters but escalated to Hayes’ involvement with knives, police have reported.

The aggravated battery charges against Hayes were based on allegations that he cut or stabbed a woman’s arm with a knife and threw a knife at another man, cutting the top of his forearm, according to court records.

He was charged with obstructing identification because he gave police a false name and birthdate, documents show.
