Two Centralia men charged with robbery, mob action for incident in Carlyle

CARLYLE, IL — Bail has been set at $100,000 each for two Centralia men held in the Clinton County jail on charges stemming from a violent incident Monday in Carlyle. The men, 35-year-old Mike Allen Burton, and 29-year-old Bryson Lee Williams, list the same home address on Forest Park in Centralia.

Both men were charged Wednesday in Clinton County Court with Class X felony armed robbery, Class 2 felony robbery, Class 3 aggravated battery in a public place, and Class 4 felony mob action. Williams was additionally charged with a second Class 3 felony for aggravated battery in a public place. It’s still unclear what happened Monday at Tipsy’s in Carlyle but there is information indicating the incident may be related to a motorcycle gang incident last week in Lake of the Ozarks that resulted in another member of the Mongol’s being shot dead during a large fight between rival biker gangs outside a bar. We’ve reached out to both the Carlyle Police Department and the Clinton County State’s Attorney’s Office for details surrounding Monday‘s event in Carlyle and will bring you that information when its released.

Both Williams and Burton are believed to be members of the Mongols and friends with Blane Curley, the Camdenton, Mo.., man and Mongol who was shot dead in the melee in Missouri. The men were advised of the charges against them in Clinton County Court Wednesday and ordered to have no contact with the victim, their residence or any witnesses, abstain from drugs and alcohol with random testing, and have no contact with any bars or taverns.

Burton and Williams are scheduled for hearings on August 4 to confirm status on counsel.
