Fox Lake Man Convicted In Baseball Bat Attack

7/26/17 – A Fox Lake man was convicted yesterday of attacking two people with a baseball bat. Michael Rogge pled to reduced misdemeanor charges of Disorderly Conduct and Battery. The 33-year-old told officers he left work during a break to run home and get his cigarettes last November.  When he arrived at his house, Rogge said there was a vehicle in the driveway that belongs to a man he suspected was having an affair with his wife.  Rogge reportedly told investigators that he grabbed the bat when he got in the house and proceeded to the bedroom, where he found the man. Rogge hit the man in the head with the bat and said he also unintentionally struck his wife, who was trying to break up the fight.  The man received 12 staples to his head while Rogge’s wife received two near her scalp. He says he never meant to hurt the man but rather wanted to scare him.  Rogge was placed on probation for 18 months and ordered to stay away from his estranged wife except for the purpose of child placement and divorce proceedings.
