Guy Irampaye (20, Rockford) was arrested, booked, and transported to the Will County Adult Detention Facility for the offenses of Aggravated Battery (2), Aggravated Resisting a Peace Officer, Criminal Damage to Property and Resisting a Peace Officer.
On April 20, 2021 at approximately 6:57AM, Officers responded to the Planet Fitness (2852 Plainfield Road) about a disturbance. Upon arrival, Officers determined that Irampaye was causing a disturbance within the gym after refusing to wear a mask as requested by employees. Irampaye then refused to leave the premises. Irampaye swung at a male employee and knocked the phone out of his hand as he attempted to dial 911. Irampaye then shoved a second male employee in the chest at which time Irampaye ran through the gym and damaged a rear door by forcing it open. Joliet Police Officers and a Rockdale Officer who was in the area encountered Irampaye who refused Officers commands to submit to arrest. Irampaye attempted to flee from Officers but was quickly placed into custody after a short struggle.
