A man from Naperville’s far northwest side remained Friday night in DuPage County Jail, after being arrested and charged with attacking Naperville police during a domestic quarrel at his home.
Shar Dzaferi was being held on $50,000 bail, according to jail records. He faces trial in DuPage County Circuit Court on a felony charge of aggravated battery of a peace officer and a misdemeanor count of resisting a peace officer.
Dzaferi, 36, lives in an apartment complex on the 1400 block of Fairway Drive, in the Country Lakes area of Naperville. He was arrested about 12:28 a.m. Wednesday at his second-floor apartment.
Police Sgt. Lou Cammiso said officers were sent to the complex to investigate “a domestic disturbance call.” Dzaferi at one point during the investigation allegedly “ended up hitting away (one) officer’s arm (and) then pushed him in the chest,” Cammiso said Friday in an e-mail.
Dzaferi further “resisted arrest by pulling his arms away, to avoid being placed in handcuffs,” Cammiso said. He was charged with aggravated battery to a police officer and resisting arrest before being taken to the jail, Cammiso said.
The officer was not seriously injured.
Court records indicated Lombard police in December 1998 arrested Dzaferi on a misdemeanor charge of battery. A judge in February 1999 ordered him to perform 100 hours of community service work, make an unspecified amount of restitution and spend time on supervision to settle that matter, records showed.
Dzaferi in April 2000 was placed on a year of supervision, after being convicted of drunken driving in Kane County, according to court records.
An Aug. 26 arraignment date has been set for Dzaferi in the Naperville case.
