Francisco Pizano, 29, of Waukegan.

A Waukegan man, who was out on bond for three separate criminal cases, is facing felony charges after he allegedly spat blood onto police officers and a paramedic in Waukegan.

Francisco Pizano, 29, of Waukegan, was charged with two counts of aggravated battery of a peace officer and one count of aggravated battery of an EMT.

The Waukegan Police Department was called to the Eddie Washington Center, 424 South Avenue, on May 10.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Dino Katris said employees of the shelter reported Pizano was highly intoxicated and wanted him removed.

Officers spoke with Pizano for over 20 minutes and asked him to leave.

Pizano refused and began resisting arrest, Katris said.

Officers began struggling with the man, who started spitting at them.

Katris said Pizano spat on two police officers and a paramedic during the incident.

Pizano was bleeding around his mouth and some of the blood got onto an officer when he was spat on, Katris said.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Pizano held on a $300,000 bond.

Pizano remains held in the Lake County Jail and would need to post $30,000 cash in order to be released.

Court records show Pizano was out on personal recognizance bonds at the time for a battery case, a domestic battery case and an aggravated assault case. All of the cases occurred in Lake County.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 6.
