A Pennsylvania man was sentenced to two years court supervision for trying to pull a Chicago Police officer off her bicycle during the anti-NATO protests here earlier this month.
Taylor Hall, 23, was sentenced last week after his felony charge of aggravated battery to a police officer was reduced to a misdemeanor and he pleaded guilty, court records show.
The May 19 assault of the bike cop at 18th and Michigan was captured on video by a TV news helicopter, authorities said.
Hall also assaulted two other officers that day and a day before but was not arrested in those cases, Cook County prosecutors said.
