Goetten said this case involved a report of a vehicle that had struck a bridge in Elsah.
"When deputies arrived on scene they found both Kyle and Courtney Bollinger present," Goetten said. "Courtney Bollinger indicated to deputies that she was driving. Deputies reported both individuals to be intoxicated. Courtney Bollinger was placed under arrest for Driving Under the Influence.
"This is when Kyle Bollinger became confrontational with deputies. After a struggle, he was taken into custody and both were transported to the Jersey County Jail.
"After further investigation by deputies, multiple eyewitnesses submitted statements that they witnessed Kyle Bollinger driving the vehicle and that Courtney Bollinger was dropped off by another vehicle after the fact, claiming to be the driver. We have subsequently dismissed the DUI against Courtney Bollinger."
Kyle Bollinger is presently charged with Resisting A Police Officer and Aggravated Assault Of A Peace Officer charge.
