Former Illinois Police Official Facing New Charge

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A former assistant police chief in southwestern Illinois who is already headed to prison is facing a new charge after a woman accused him of beating her.

Former Centreville Assistant Police Chief Corey Allen is set to begin a two-year sentence in federal prison for lying to investigators about selling a gun to a registered sex offender.  The (Belleville) News Democrat reports that Allen was charged Friday with misdemeanor battery.

St. Clair County State's Attorney Brendan Kelly says Allen is being held in lieu of $5,000 bail on the new charge. Records in the case do not list an attorney for Allen.

According to officers responding to the assault outside Allen's home, the assailant choked the woman, slammed her head against a boat and threw her to the ground.
