Carson Maxwell, 24, of Belvidere.

A man, who was out on bond for shooting at a family in a car, was arrested after he allegedly beat and injured a man with a baseball bat near Marengo.

Carson Maxwell, 24, of Belvidere, was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and criminal damage to property.

A criminal complaint filed in McHenry County Circuit Court alleges Maxwell struck a victim with a metal baseball bat around 1:55 a.m. on March 29.

The incident occurred at Cox Road and River Road in unincorporated Marengo.

The victim was struck in the wrist and arm and suffered major swelling and redness, the complaint said.

The victim’s Dodge 1500 truck was also damaged by Maxwell, the complaint said.

In June, Maxwell was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated discharge of a firearm, a Class 1 felony, and one count of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, a Class 4 felony.

Maxwell was alleged to have fired his gun intentionally towards an occupied vehicle in the area of River Road and Thorne Road in unincorporated Marengo, a criminal complaint said.

McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Kevin Byrnes told Lake and McHenry County Scanner that deputies responded and learned a road rage incident occurred.

Maxwell allegedly fired several rounds toward a vehicle, which was occupied by the victim and their family, Byrnes said.

Prosecutors said two children were in the vehicle that was shot at.

The gun Maxwell used was recovered and placed into evidence, Byrnes said.

Maxwell was released from the McHenry County Jail in that incident after posting 10% of a $100,000 bond.

An arrest warrant was issued last week for Maxwell in the new case and he was taken into custody days later, court records show.

McHenry County Judge Mark Gerhardt ordered Maxwell held on a $50,000 bond.

Maxwell remains held in the McHenry County Jail and would need to post $5,000 cash in order to be released.

Prosecutors have filed a motion asking the court to increase Maxwell’s bond for violating his release conditions in his June case.

Prosecutors said Maxwell is also currently on probation for brandishing a firearm and threatening another person in Winnebago County.

A hearing on the motion is scheduled for Thursday.
