A McHenry man being held in the McHenry County Jail is facing additional charges after he allegedly threw urine at a corrections officer last week.
Nicholas B. Hitztaler, 23, of the 800 block of North Melrose Court in McHenry, has been in the McHenry County Jail since November 24, jail records show.
He was being held on a $3,000 bond for violating an order of protection.
Court records show Hitztaler was charged on Tuesday with aggravated battery of a peace officer, a Class 2 felony.
A criminal complaint said a McHenry County corrections officer was conducting well-being checks in the jail on March 4.
Hitztaler “threw urine” onto the officer’s shirt and pants, the complaint said.
A separate criminal complaint charging Hitztaler with misdemeanor battery alleges that the man threw an “unknown yellowish” liquid substance at a different corrections officer on February 11.
That complaint did not specify if the substance was urine or not.
Hitztaler is also facing a charge of felony criminal damage to government property.
A criminal complaint alleges the man used a broom to hit a wall clock, causing the clock to fall to the ground and break on February 10.
Hitztaler remains held in the jail on a $53,000 bond, meaning he would need to post $5,300 in cash to be released.
He is scheduled to appear in court again on March 25.
