Chicago Man Charged With Felonies After Fight With Aurora Police Officers
A 24-year-old Chicago man was charged with three felonies and a misdemeanor after he allegedly fought with some Aurora police officers around 11:15 p.m., Jan. 17.
The Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office authorized two felony counts of resisting the police and another felony count of aggravated battery to the police; along with a misdemeanor count of obstructing police against Tony Grayson-Greene of the 100 block of N. Lorel Ave.
Upon response to a disturbance call at an apartment building in the 900 block of Oliver Ave., Aurora officers came across Grayson-Greene and a 20-year-old Aurora woman. When asked for identification, Grayson-Greene refused to provide it and became increasingly hostile toward the officers.
After placing him under arrest for obstructing, Grayson-Greene became physical with the officers when they put him in the back of a squad car to await transportation to the police station. At one point, Grayson-Greene tried to head butt one of the officers and also spat on him.
Grayson-Greene is being held in the Kane County Correctional Center in lieu of $30,000 bail.
The charges are not proof of guilt. Grayson-Greene is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which it is the burden of the State to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Grayson-Greene was also wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant from the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office. The woman with him when the call originated was not charged.
