Glen Ellyn Police Arrest Man Charged in October Wheaton Taser Incident

Police reports confirm that Christopher Shukin was arrested in Glen Ellyn on Nov. 7. He was arrested in Wheaton on Oct. 24 after officers used a Taser on him.

A Glen Ellyn man arrested in late October in an incident requiring Wheaton police to use a Taser to subdue him, was arrested in Glen Ellyn last week.

Glen Ellyn police reports confirm that Christopher Shukin, 22, of the 400 block of Hill Avenue, was arrested at 2:34 a.m. Nov. 7 at the intersection of Main Street and Hill Avenue.

Shukin was charged with public indecency, according to police reports.

On Oct. 24, Shukin was arrested in Wheaton after police responded to a report of a man without pants walking around an apartment complex at around 10:20 p.m. in the 1600 block of South Briarcliffe Boulevard, Patch reported.

In that incident, Shukin tried to run away and when he clenched his fists and took aggressive steps toward the officers, they used the Taser on him, Wheaton police said.

In addition to the Wheaton arrest, Shukin had been arrested days earlier in Glen Ellyn. Officials had confirmed that at 4 p.m. Oct. 21 Shukin was arrested in the 200 block of Regent Street. He was charged with criminal trespass to a residence and released on $1,000 bail.
