A Wheaton man was held under $100,000 bond Sunday after he allegedly attacked four Wheaton police officers who were attempting to place him under arrest.
Lucas Sage, 21, faces multiple charges in connection with the July 27 incident, including four counts of aggravated battery, damage to government property, resisting arrest and misdemeanor driving under the influence of alcohol, the DuPage County state’s attorney’s office said.
About 7:55 p.m. that day, officers responded to calls of a person driving drunk on Briarbrook Drive, prosecutors said. When officers arrived on the scene, Sage was no longer in his vehicle but chasing a man through the parking lot.
When officers attempted to stop Sage from leaving the scene, he lunged toward one of the officers and threatened him, prosecutors said. As more officers arrived to place him into custody, Sage attacked them, punching one in the face several times and elbowing and hitting three others.
Once officers had successfully restrained Sage and place him inside the car, Sage continued to threaten police and even head-butted the cage inside the car, prosecutors said.
Sage appeared in bond court Sunday morning where Judge James Konetski set his bound at $100,000, prosecutors said. He is due back in court August 26 for arraignment.
