A 23-year-old Crystal Lake man was sentenced to two years in prison for an incident where he was accused of exposing himself to officers and resisting arrest in Cary.
Colton Howell, 23, of the 100 block of Ellsworth Street in Crystal Lake, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery of a peace officer, two counts of aggravated assault of a peace officer, two counts of public indecency, consumption of liquor by a minor, resisting or obstructing a peace officer causing injury and resisting a peace officer.
On July 30, 2018, Howell allegedly exposed his genitals and buttocks to two officers.
Howell also allegedly pushed an officer and then ran into his apartment in the 0-100 block of Garden Place in Cary to evade arrest, a criminal complaint said.
The complaint said that Howell slammed a door on an officer.
The officer’s left boot was caught between the door frame and door as Howell continued to push the door shut, causing injury to the officer, the complaint said.
During the incident, Howell also implied he had a firearm in an “aggressive manner” to both officers, the complaint said.
Howell, who was 20 years old at the time, was also charged with consuming alcohol while underage.
A judge set his bond at $150,000. He was later released on his own recognizance in December 2018.
Howell failed to appear in court multiple times throughout the case.
On Tuesday, he entered into a negotiated plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to the charge of resisting or obstructing a peace officer causing injury, a Class 4 felony.
In exchange, prosecutors dismissed the rest of his charges.
McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge sentenced Howell to two years in prison with one year of mandatory supervised release.
