BOLINGBROOK – The Bolingbrook man accused of striking a police officer in the head with a fence post has been released from the hospital and transported to the Will County Adult Detention Facility, according to the Bolingbrook Police Department.

Levan Davis, 21, of 364 Walnut Circle, now faces three charges stemming from the Aug. 7 incident: one count of attempted murder with intent to kill, one count of aggravated battery against a peace officer and one count of aggravated battery with use of a deadly weapon, according to the Will County Sheriff's Office.

His bail was set at $1 million and he is scheduled to appear in Will County Court at 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

About 9:17 a.m. Aug. 7, Bolingbrook police responded to Davis' residence in reference to a domestic battery involving him and his father, according to Bolingbrook Police Lt. Rompa. The father reportedly told police that Davis was exhibiting violent behavior and was possibly under the influence of drugs, Rompa said.

Officers arrived on scene and were immediately attacked by Davis, according Rompa.

Davis allegedly struck one officer in the head with a metal fence post and attempted to strike the officer again before a second officer fired two rounds at Davis to stop another attack, Rompa said.

Both rounds hit Davis, and he was then secured, Rompa added.

Davis and the two police officers were transported to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital, where each were treated for their respective injuries. One officer was treated for minor injuries while the other was treated for a serious head wound, according to Rompa. As of Monday, the second officer is "still recovering," Rompa said.

Davis remained in critical condition at the hospital for nearly a week before he was transported to Will County ADF Wednesday, according to police.
