EVERGREEN PARK, Ill. — The whistleblower responsible for exposing Jackie Robinson West’s recruiting violations — leading to the Little League team being stripped of its U.S. title — was arrested by police Tuesday.

Christopher Janes is now facing a series of charges. In an Evergreen Park police report, a woman said she arrived home overnight and saw Janes running toward her.

She escaped into her house, but Janes allegedly pounded on the door, shouting for her husband to come out and fight.

Janes was arrested on several charges, including disorderly conduct, assault, resisting arrest and obstructing a police officer.

He is due in court on April 13.
