Prosecutors say Neylon smashed the windows of two squad cars outside District 7. When police got outside to see the damage, Neylon was allegedly on the ground fighting with an officer.

According to investigators, Neylon bashed the officer in the head, which caused a "two-inch laceration" that required "staples and glue" to close. Prosecutors identified the officer as a 35-year-old man. He suffered a concussion.
