Nicholas B. Hitztaler, 23, of McHenry.

A McHenry man held in the McHenry County Jail faces additional charges after he allegedly threw urine at a correctional officer last week.

Nicholas B. Hitztaler, 23, of the 800 block of North Melrose Court in McHenry, has been held in the McHenry County jail since November 24, according to jail records.

He was being held on $3,000 bond for breaching a protective order.

Court records show Hitztaler was charged Tuesday with aggravated assault of a peace officer, a Class 2 felony.

A criminal complaint said a McHenry County correctional officer was conducting wellness checks at the jail on March 4.

Hitztaler “squirted urine” on the officer’s shirt and pants, according to the complaint.

A separate criminal complaint charging Hitztaler with misdemeanor battery alleges the man threw an “unknown yellowish” liquid substance at another prison officer on February 11.

This complaint did not specify whether the substance was urine or not.

Hitztaler also faces a felony charge of criminal damage to government property.

A criminal complaint alleges the man used a broom to strike a wall clock, causing the clock to fall to the ground and break on February 10.

Hitztaler remains held in the jail on $53,000 bail, which means he would have to post $5,300 in cash to be released.

He is due to appear in court again on March 25.
