JEFFERSON COUNTY — A 37-year-old Herrin man remains in the Jefferson County Jail after he was arrested over the weekend for alleged home invasion and battery.

Dustin L. Knight was formally charged Monday in Jefferson County court with Class 3 felony aggravated battery causing great bodily harm.

Once inside the home Knight allegedly battered a man inside. Two other people in the home reportedly restrained Knight until deputies arrived on the scene.
