Activist Ja’Mal Green indicted by grand jury

CHICAGO -- Activist Ja'Mal Green has been indicted by a grand jury on charges he allegedly punched a police officer and tried to disarm an officer.

Green appeared in court this morning and was joined by other activists and faith based leaders.

He was arrested and charged last month at an anti-police brutality march and protest at The Taste of Chicago.

Green was later released on $350,000 bond.

He now faces five felony charges and two misdemeanors.

Green's attorney said his client is not guilty.

The 20-year old will be arraigned August 23rd.
