Austin Michalik, 31, was taken into custody after he was seen walking down Roosevelt Road with tree trimmers several minutes after sheriff’s deputies were called to Meyers Road for a report of someone cutting power lines to three homes in the area, according to the DuPage County State’s Attorney’s Office.
