The case of how a 19-year-old Bolingbrook man came to be charged with possession of a controlled substance—a felony—and possession of cannabis is one that begs a question:
Nicholas P. Weesies, 19, 129 Galewood Drive, Bolingbrook, was in court on Wednesday making an appearance in a case involving previous charges against him when judge Dave Carlson ordered a Bolingbrook police officer to detain him for contempt because his cell phone was causing a disturbance, Lt. Mike Rompa said.
The officer took Weesies into custody and discovered cannabis (0.6 grams) and two pills (0.5 grams) of Alprozolam on his person, Rompa said.
Weesies was booked and transported to the Will County Adult Detention Facility. And soon he will be back in court again.
"Judge Carlson continued the case the defendant was present for," Rompa said.
Weesies was booked in October for the role he allegedly played in a fight that occurred on the 500 block of North Pinecrest Road. Two men suffered non-life threating injuries in a brawl that reportedly involved 6-7 subjects.
