Brothers Beaten, Stabbed in Domestic Dispute at Plainfield Gun Club: Police

Family dispute leaves two brothers hospitalized, with charges pending, police said.

Two brothers wound up in the hospital after getting into a fight at a Plainfield hunting and fishing club, police said.

Will County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said deputies responded to a domestic dispute at the Pure Rod and Gun Club, 23239 W. Main St., late Thursday night.

Hoffmeyer said the brothers were drinking when they got into an argument that ended with one man being taken to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital for injuries sustained when he was beaten. The other brother was taken to Presence St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet after being stabbed. Hoffmeyer did not know the extent of his injuries, but said they were not life threatening.

Hoffmeyer, who did not have any information on the men's names or ages, said charges are pending against both brothers.

“The deputies were waiting for them to be released from the hospital to take them into custody,” Hoffmeyer said, adding one man is set to be charged with aggravated domestic battery, while his brother faces a domestic battery charge.

She said the men’s father was also taken into custody following the incident.

“He was also drinking and was trying to get into his car,” which prompted deputies to take action to prevent him from driving, Hoffmeyer said.

Booking information for the three men was not immediately available Friday morning.

This wouldn't have happened if they had weapons to protect themselves.

Drinking at the Gun Club - great idea! They must be genious. I can't wait for the gun lover loonies to stop by and explain this one. It must be some sort of left wing, socialist Obama's fault.

Ok it's loony gun lovers fault that 2 idiot brothers got into a fight at a gun club with knives and obamas fault? Rb You're an idiot and should not be allowed the right to speak let alone bear arms. This was a couple of idiots and people immediately have to pull the gun card and talk ludicrous!
Olddeegee April 05, 2013 at 06:27 PM
You mean the "gun club" card as the article states.

Notice the lack of a shooting? Kind of blows holes in (some) people's theories that gun owers can't be trusted to appropriately use firearms when concealed carry somes to pass in IL.

Rb you have no clue about the pure rod and gun club. Its more about the camping and fishing then it is about the guns. The club is a great safe place to go camping and have a good time. These two idiot brothers are not a reflection on what goes on there. So before you go and start talking bad about the club you might want to do some research before you decide to open your big dumb mouth!!

It's a hunting & FISHING club (Pure rod & gun club) NO firearms were involved per article most people have knifes when fishing If covicted FOID cards will probably be taken away per the law.

Gee, do I hear banjos playing the music to the movie Deliverance in the background?

"Genious," indeed.

Hahaha.....Nice one Tony. I was jst thinking the same thing. Sounds like a bunch of idiots to me.
Buckgrove April 06, 2013 at 01:44 PM
Olddeegee- If they had guns they would be more severely injured or dead! That's the problem with guns and alcohol. I agree w/ Tony M... do you hear the banjos in the background?

Jessica, RB didn't say anything about the gun club, good or bad. I think she was slamming the brilliant patrons of the gun club that are drinking and going to a gun club. You sound a little defensive, genius!
Eric April 11, 2013 at 06:12 PM
RB & JILL..... It's ONLY a gun club for hunting season which is over. It is NOT guns all year round with target shooting. RESEARCH THE CLUB FIRST!!! You both look like idiots for thinking they are drinking where there are guns. At this time it is camping and fishing only.
