Varna Man Facing Several Charges After Bar Fight

Posted by wlpo on April 17, 2012

Things apparently got wild outside of a tavern in Varna.

Ronnie Deffenbaugh Jr. of Varna is in the Marshall County Jail after being arrested Saturday night.  Investigators say trouble started when Deffenbaugh got into a fight with a group of people Saturday morning outside Mommy’s VIP Tavern in Varna.  When driving away, he’s accused of swerving into three men and hitting them.  They were all treated and released at St. Margaret’s Hospital.

Deffenbaugh meanwhile was pursued by a deputy in Lacon before he ditched his car and fled on foot.  He was pulled over almost 24 hours later in Peoria County.

Deffenbaugh faces charges of failing to report a personal injury accident, three counts of reckless conduct with a motor vehicle, and aggravated fleeing and eluding police.  He was also wanted on warrants for disorderly conduct in Marshall County, aggravated battery in La Salle County and DUI in Peoria County.

Deffenbaugh has bond of 250 thousand dollars.
