SYCAMORE – A Chicago man charged with two counts of aggravated resisting of a police officer was released on his signature Wednesday – but he won’t be free anytime soon.
“He’s obviously got bigger fish to fry in Cook County,” Judge Philip Montgomery said.
Willie B. Brown, 25, could face one to three years in prison if he’s convicted on either count. He also has been charged with obstructing identification.
Police said in court records that as officers spoke with Brown, while they were returning property to him from a man arrested in an unrelated case, he gave them a false name, and when they tried to arrest him for that, he ran and refused to be cuffed.
The records show that the officers documented scratches that drew blood on their hands and knees.
Montgomery said Brown has four felony convictions and has active cases in Cook County, so that’s where he’s headed.
Brown is due back in DeKalb County court at 9 a.m. Dec. 14.
