Police have charged Cary resident Dustin M. Mancill, 23, with various offenses after he allegedly attempted to bring a hatchet into the McHenry County Courthouse in Woodstock on Thursday, the Northwest Herald reports.
The charges against Mancill stemming from the Jan. 10 incident include two counts of aggravated battery to a peace officer, three counts of resisting arrest, and one count of unlawful use of a weapon, the Herald reports.
McHenry County Court records show Mancill was scheduled to appear in court at 9 a.m. on misdemeanor charges of domestic battery and aggravated assault of a police officer issued against him by the Cary Police Department in February 2011.
While Mancill was proceeding through the normal security screening at 8 a.m. at the courthouse, a security guard saw a hatchet tucked inside the front of Mancill's pants, according to the article. The security officer grabbed the weapon and pulled Mancill aside, at which time a scuffle ensued. Mancill was transported to Centegra Hospital in Woodstock for evaluation, the Herald reports.
