A Huntley man is accused of aggravated battery to an officer, according to the Chicago Police Department.

The incident occurred on the 1300 block of S. Lynn White Drive, which is to the north of the FirstMerit Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island.

Chverchko was charged with aggravated battery to a peace officer, which is a felony, and one misdemeanor count of resisting arrest.
