CHAMPAIGN — An Urbana teen who showed up late for a Parkland College placement test and made a fuss has been charged with delivery of cannabis on school grounds, resisting a peace officer and unlawful use of weapons.
Parkland College Police Chief Von Young said Dyllyn C. Williams, 18, who listed an address in the 1100 block of East Florida Avenue, was arrested Tuesday morning.
Young said Williams arrived at the student testing center about 10:30 a.m. to take a placement test, but because he was late, he was denied admission.
"He became belligerent, was raising his voice, yelling and using profane language," Young said.
Officers were called and could smell the strong odor of cannabis coming from Williams.
Young said police tried to calm Williams, but he continued to be abusive and refused to give them any identification.
After his arrest for disorderly conduct, Williams was taken to the police station at the college.
Young said during a routine search, police found a bag containing 11 grams — about a third of an ounce — of cannabis and $715 cash on him. They then took him to the county jail.
They later searched the car that Williams arrived in and found a loaded handgun in the glove box and seized it. He does not have a firearm owner's identification card, Young said.
Assistant State's Attorney Sam Rosenberg said Williams has a pending felony case in Pulaski County charging him with unlawful use of weapons and possession with intent to deliver cannabis.
Judge Rich Klaus set Williams' bond at $100,000 and told him to be back in court March 28.
