Defendant says he suffered head injury during drug charges arrest

A man in Illinois appeared in a courtroom with his head wrapped in a white bandage. He told the court that police officers caused his head injury during a recent arrest process. The man is facing drug charges in addition to other problems reportedly associated with a past incident.

In most circles, $25,000 is considered a large amount of money. This is the amount of the bond that was set after the man's recent arrest. In fact, he is currently still being held in jail while the court decides whether to increase the amount due to issues regarding a protective order filed against him last year. The new drug charges are said to have violated certain bond conditions related to the other situation.

The man was recently taken into custody after police showed up at his home in the wee hours of the morning. It wasn't stated whether the officers merely acted on a whim, or had some concrete reason for paying the man a visit. At any rate, they entered his home and claim to have found illegal drugs inside.

The officers also say they found various types of equipment and supplies in the man's home typically associated with drug distribution. The man allegedly told authorities he buys marijuana from local Illinois providers, then resells it. He also supposedly admitted to using cocaine. Fighting drug charges in Illinois (or any state for that matter) can be quite a challenging experience. Many choose to allow experienced criminal defense attorneys to act on their behalves in court to increase their chances of avoiding convictions.
