Police: Man arrested on parole violation in downtown DeKalb

DeKALB – Authorities arrested a 52-year-old man accused of violating his parole about 2 p.m. Monday at McDonald's, 545 E. Lincoln Highway in downtown DeKalb.

James M. Ball, of the 1200 block of Pleasant Street in DeKalb, was sitting in a vehicle in the parking lot when police arrested him without incident, DeKalb Police Cmdr. John Petragallo said. Ball was released on parole in February 2012 after serving almost half of a six year sentence for armed robbery in Jo Daviess County, Illinois Department of Corrections records show.

Extra police were called to help with the arrest because of Ball's criminal background, Petragallo said.
