A man who was arrested after he allegedly pointed a Glock handgun at someone in Waukegan appeared for his bond hearing while wearing a “Glock” hoodie.
Charly Jenkins, 20, of Zion, was charged with two counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Caitlin Valiulis said an altercation had occurred between two women.
One of the women called Jenkins and he came to their apartment in Waukegan on September 13.
Valiulis said Jenkins was trying to get his brother’s keys from the apartment and told the occupants he had a gun.
The victim called 911 and dispatch heard someone say “he’s got a gun” before the line disconnected.
While officers were responding, Jenkins pointed the gun at the victim through the open door, Valiulis said.
Jenkins confronted the woman about the missing car keys.
She told the man they were down at the front office in an attempt to get him out in the open in public, Valiulis said.
The group was outside the apartment complex when officers arrived. The victim yelled to officers that Jenkins had a gun.
Apartment staff told police that they witnessed Jenkins pull out a gun from underneath his jacket and run behind the building to hide the gun underneath a shed.
One of the staff members wrapped the gun, a loaded Glock .45, in a towel and gave it to officers when they arrived, Valiulis said.
Officers found a second loaded magazine for the gun nearby.
Jenkins made admissions about possessing the gun and admitted to going to the apartment and telling the victim he had a gun, Valiulis said.
He also admitted to hiding the gun under the shed.
Jenkins does not have a Firearm Owners Identification card or a concealed carry license.
Jenkins appeared in bond court while wearing a black hoodie with the word “GLOCK” on the front of it.
After the judge pointed out the humor in the situation, Jenkins took the hoodie off and wore a shirt he had underneath the hoodie.
Jenkins remains held in the Lake County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
A status of preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 4.
