A 22-year-old Saukville man is charged with resisting officers and possession of THC after Port Washington police officers said he ran from them while carrying a baggie of marijuana in his pocket.
Kory A. Kendall was charged in Ozaukee County Circuit Court on Monday with one count of resisting an officer and one count of possession of THC, which is the active ingredient in marijuana. If convicted, he faces up to 15 months in prison and $11,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
A Port Washington police officer was on patrol at 1:09 a.m. Monday in the 1000 block of North Wisconsin Avenue, when he spotted Kendall and another man near some dumpsters by a business. Kendall went behind the dumpster while the other man knelt nearby.
When the officer pulled up in a squad car, the man yelled “Kory” and “cops,” so Kendall ran. The officer chased after him and was able to catch Kendall after he tripped and fell.
Kendall was placed in handcuffs and the officer saw a baggie of marijuana sticking out of his pocket, according to the complaint.
Kendall is free on a $500 signature bond while awaiting trial.
