A 32-year-old Moline man faces multiple charges after police allege he was driving drunk and kicked an officer during an incident on Saturday.
Elijah Brown faces felony charges of aggravated battery and aggravated DUI (fifth offense,) along with misdemeanor charges of DUI and driving on a revoked license; as well as citations of operating an uninsured vehicle, improper traffic lane usage and disregarding a traffic-control device, court records show.
In arrest affidavits, police allege Brown drove a red Chrysler Town and Country minivan on 6th Avenue in Moline “at a time when the defendant was under the influence of alcohol.”
