A 23-year-old Carpentersville man was arrested following a scuffle with McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies where he tried to disarm a deputy, officials said.
Jordon D. Linson-Currie, 23, of Carpentersville, was charged with attempting to disarm a peace officer, possession of cannabis with intent to deliver, possession of a controlled substance, possession of cannabis between 30-100 grams and resisting arrest.
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said that Linson-Currie was pulled over by deputies on Thursday around 3 p.m. near Virginia Road and Darlington Lane in Crystal Lake for using a cellphone while driving.
Sheriff’s deputies had probably cause to search the vehicle during the traffic stop after they smelled an odor of marijuana. After searching the vehicle, authorities found 59 grams of packaged marijuana in one ounce baggies along with 13 Xanax bars, a scale, packaging material and $620 cash.
“When the deputies attempted to take Jordon into custody a brief scuffle ensued, at which point Jordon attempted to grab one deputy’s firearm and pull it from the holster,” the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office said.
Linson-Currie was taken into custody and transported to the McHenry County Jail where he remains held on a $70,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court again on Tuesday.
