A Lake in the Hills man who allegedly punched a 60-year-old man in the head was released from the McHenry County Jail after posting bond Friday.
Police arrested 36-year-old Joshua M. Stadie on Monday, saying he struck an older family member twice. The fight resulted in felony charges against Stadie, who has a previous conviction for a similar offense in McHenry County, according to a criminal complaint.
Stadie, of the
100 block of Indian Trail, is charged with aggravated battery and domestic battery.
Police responded at 6:11 p.m. Sept. 3 to the 100 block of Indian Trail, where a caller had reported a fight between two men, police said. The fight broke out after a disagreement, Lake in the Hills police communications coordinator Ashley Eccles said. It was not clear what the two were arguing about.
Domestic battery typically is a misdemeanor offense punishable by less than a year in jail. However, if Stadie is convicted of the most serious charge, aggravated battery, he could be sentenced to between two and five years in prison.
He entered a negotiated plea in 2006 and was convicted of a separate domestic battery charge. A judge ordered him to serve one year of conditional discharge and complete anger counseling, public records show.
The 2006 charges stemmed from claims that Stadie hit a woman in the head with the butt of a rifle, according to a criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court.
He’s due in court Thursday on the most recent charge.
