URBANA — A Champaign man who was released from custody earlier this month after he allegedly robbed a man on campus is back in jail on new charges.

Zachary Overman, 30, for whom no address was listed, was charged Monday with aggravated battery in an incident over the weekend in the parking garage in downtown Urbana.

Assistant State’s Attorney Dan Taylor said Overman allegedly got into a fight with a man there Sunday and struck him in the back of the head. Urbana police said Overman appeared intoxicated.

At the time, Overman was on conditional release ahead of his trial on charges of allegedly fighting and taking the wallet of another man on Oct. 6 in the 500 block of East Green Street.

Court records show he is also currently on probation for resisting a peace officer and has other convictions for domestic battery, assault, aggravated battery, obstructing a peace officer and theft.

Taylor asked Judge Brett Olmstead to revoke Overman’s pretrial release in the robbery case based on the new charge.

The state’s attorney is also taking steps to revoke Overman’s probation for resisting a peace officer.
