Prosecutors said a man pushed and grabbed multiple officers, including pushing one to the ground, after they revived him following an overdose in Vernon Hills.
Sergey Kovalev, 34, of Vernon Hills, was charged with one count of aggravated battery to a peace officer, a Class 2 felony.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Caitlin Valiulis said Vernon Hills police officers received a call for a noise complaint in the 0-10 block of Crestview Lane on September 14.
Officers found the door to the residence was open and loud music was being played.
Kovalev was on the couch and appeared to be sleeping.
Officers tried to talk to Kovalev from the door to get him to wake up but he did not wake up.
Valiulis said officers entered the residence to do a wellbeing check and Kovalev remained unresponsive until officers gave him Narcan.
Kovalev “appeared heavily intoxicated,” Valiulis said. Paramedics arrived to evaluate him but he became agitated and refused to go to the hospital.
Officers tried to leave and Kovalev prevented them from leaving by allegedly grabbing an officer’s arm.
Kovalev grabbed and pushed another officer, Valiulis said.
The officers again attempted to leave and Kovalev followed them into the common area of the apartment building.
Kovalev advanced on officers despite being told to stop, Valiulis said.
Kovalev allegedly grabbed an officer’s arm and pushed him before then pushing another officer to the ground.
Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered him held on a $100,000 bond.
Kovalev was released from the Lake County Jail after posting $10,000 cash.
The date of Kovalev’s next court hearing was not immediately known.
