A Chicago activist accused of hitting a police officer and attempting to disarm another at a protest last month was indicted Wednesday.
Ja'Mal Green was indicted on five felony and two misdemeanor charges in connection with the incidents that allegedly occurred at a July 9 protest against police brutality in downtown Chicago.
Green's attorney Michael Oppenheimer addressed the media Wednesday outside the courthouse.
"The fight will continue against these charges to 26th Street where at the end he will be found not guilty," Oppenheimer said, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The 20-year-old activist was arrested during the protest last month and later released from Cook County Jail after posting bail.
