A Cook County Circuit judge has been charged with domestic battery after an incident Tuesday evening in the Beverly neighborhood. 

Judge Carl Boyd — assigned to the 6th Municipal District in the Markham courthouse — was arrested Tuesday evening at his home after throwing a bottle at a glass door window, causing the window to break, Chicago police said. 

A woman, 57, suffered a large laceration to the left side of her face from the broken glass, police said. 

Boyd was charged with a misdemeanor count of domestic battery causing bodily harm, police said. He appeared in court Wednesday and was released on a $10,000 recognizance bond.

The Circuit Court’s Executive Committee met Wednesday and reassigned Boyd to restricted duties in the 1st District, according to a statement from Chief Judge Timothy Evans.

The Illinois Supreme Court has been asked to assign a judge outside of Cook County to hear Boyd’s criminal case. His next court date was scheduled for Sept. 27.
