A man is facing a felony drug charge after officers allegedly caught him with cocaine after a fight last week in west suburban Aurora.
Tremaine Jyles, 25, is charged with a felony count of possession of a controlled substance and a misdemeanor count of resisting or obstructing a police officer, according to a statement from Aurora police.
Someone flagged down patrol officers about 4:45 p.m. May 30 to report a fight between Jyles and a 20-year-old Aurora woman near a car in the 400 block of State Street, police said.
When officers arrived to intervene, Jyles “pulled away and resisted the officers,” police said. As they arrested him for the resisting and obstruction charge, the officers found one bag of what they believed to be cocaine in his pocket and another on the ground nearby.
The woman, who was not injured during the altercation, declined to press charges against Jyles, police said.
Jyles has since posted bond and been released, according to Kane County court records. His next court date was set for Thursday.
