Meredosia police chief allegedly put a gun to a woman's head


Court documents in the case against Curtis Williams, the Chief of Police for the Village of Meredosia, Illinois, state that Williams allegedly made physical contact by shoving a woman into a bed and knowingly held a firearm to the back of her head, threatening to shoot her.

Documents also state that Williams' bond is set at $5,000 with 10% to apply, he is restricted from the possession of firearms, and he must engage in Men's Group immediately upon bonding. Williams also must refrain from contact with Sherrie Gilbert and her property.

Williams was charged with offenses of Domestic Battery and Aggravated Assault for an incident that occurred on December 8.

He has been put on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the investigation.

He will appear in court for his arraignment January 29, 2019 at 9:15 a.m. in Pike County.
