Beach Park Resident Arrested After Exiting Vehicle Armed with Firearm During Traffic Stop

A Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy on Monday, May 3, 2021, at approximately 7:00 p.m. was on patrol in the area of Sheridan Road south of Wadsworth Road, Beach Park when a vehicle was observed traveling on Sheridan Road in a reckless manner — including speeding, weaving between vehicles, and driving over a curb. The Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy then observed the driver pull into the Beach Mobile Home Park.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy turned in to the mobile home park to conduct a traffic stop. As the deputy pulled in, the driver, Quentin Newbrey, 34, of the block of 38700 North Sheridan Road, Beach Park, parked and exited his vehicle. Newbrey was armed with a semi-automatic pistol and quickly approached the front door of a mobile home. The sheriff’s deputy gave instructions for Newbrey to drop the pistol, which he did.

After dropping the firearm, Newbrey was non-compliant with the deputy. He pulled his pants down and began to urinate on the side of the mobile home, ignoring the deputy’s instructions. The deputy subsequently utilized his electronic control device (Taser) on Newbrey and he was able to take Newbrey into custody.

Newbrey was uninjured and was transported to the Lake County Jail, where he resisted correctional officers, who administered pepper spray.

After reviewing the facts and circumstances of the case, the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office approved the following charges:

Unlawful Possession of a Firearm by a Felon (class 2 felony)

Aggravated Unlawful Possession of a Firearm (class 2 felony)

Possessing a Firearm While Not Being Eligible for FOID (class 3 felony)

Resisting Arrest (class A misdemeanor)

Reckless Driving (class A misdemeanor)

Newbrey remains held at the Lake County Jail on $75,000.00 bail pending a return court date of May 20, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. in courtroom T020.

All defendants are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law.
