Zachary P. Collins, 31, of Normal, is charged with aggravated battery, resisting a peace officer with injury and domestic battery.

Prosecutors said Collins got into an argument Tuesday at the Fast Stop, 817 W. College Ave., Normal, with his girlfriend, who was trying to cut off their relationship.

When police arrived, Collins pushed a Normal police officer away and eventually scratched the officer’s eyelid, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors also said Collins “put his hand on the victim’s face, dragging his hand across her face and removing her glasses.”

Collins was jailed in lieu of posting $335 and he was ordered to have no contact with the victim.

An arraignment is set for Aug. 13.

Despite nationwide lockdowns, cities across the country saw homicides skyrocket in 2020, including a 55% jump in Chicago.
