A Carpentersville man who police said grabbed for a deputy’s gun after they reported finding marijuana and Xanax in his vehicle remained at the McHenry County Jail on Monday morning.
The situation began about 3 p.m. Thursday, when McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies stopped a driver on suspicion that he was using an electronic device in the area of Virginia Road and Darlington Lane in Crystal Lake.
Deputies searched 23-year-old Jordon D. Linson-Currie’s vehicle after smelling marijuana, according to a news release sent Monday from the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.
The search yielded 2 ounces of marijuana packaged in baggies, 13 Xanax bars, paraphernalia and $620 in cash, the release stated.
A “brief scuffle ensued” when officers tried to arrest Linson-Currie, who tried to pull a deputy’s firearm from its holster, according to the release.
Deputies arrested Linson-Currie and took him to the McHenry County Jail, where he remained Monday on a $70,000 bond, jail records show.
He is charged with trying to disarm a peace officer, possession with intent to deliver marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana and resisting a peace officer.
If Linson-Currie were convicted of trying to disarm a peace officer, he could be sentenced to as many as seven years in prison.
He is due in court Tuesday.
