WILLIAMSON CO., Ill. - Explanation of a March incident at a popular sports bar in Marion, as well as the hemming up of a couple of people from Harrisburg, highlights this week’s coverage of serious crime in Williamson County.

This week’s Felony Friday begins by answering questions many of you have had on the latest stabbing at Heartland Sports Bar. Charges were recently filed against 38-year-old Amos M. Nelson of Marion from an incident that happened on March 15, 2018. A female friend of Nelson had invited him to come to the bar that evening. The female was also accompanied by her boyfriend. During drinks and conversation, at one point Nelson is alleged to have touched the buttocks of the female friend and she asked him not to do so. This infuriated the boyfriend and a heated argument began between the two men. Later near closing, the female left the bar and so did Nelson not long after. The boyfriend witnessed this and also left and the couple began a verbal argument. Nelson is said to have hit the boyfriend in the head and the boyfriend grabbed Nelson by the back of the head, pulling him closer to keep from being hit. Nelson then is said to have stabbed the boyfriend several times. Not realizing he had been stabbed, a physical altercation continued. Nelson is said to have left the scene and the victim received treatment for his wounds.

Nelson is charged one count of Aggravated Battery With a Deadly Weapon. He was instructed not to have presence in any bars or lounges nor to have contact with the victim or his girlfriend. He is free on a $750 cash bond.

She even tried unsuccessfully to return three of them at checkout. She is free on a $500 cash bond and is to have no contact with Target or Walmart.

Thomas K. Duffey, 55 of Springfield, has charged with Possession of Methamphetamine less than 5 grams. An officer from the Marion Police Department was dispatched to an address on Enterprise Way in reference to a man whom had refused to exit an ambulance after signing a refusal of treatment. The officer instructed Duffey to stand up and exit the ambulance. When Duffey stood up, the officer noticed a large buck knife as well as a black knife sheaf attached to his belt. Those items were removed and the officer asked Duffey for his identification and Duffey handed him his wallet. It was discovered Duffey was on parole. Duffey consented to a search of his person and inside his front coin pocket, police noticed a hard plastic item and asked Duffey what it was. Duffey’s reply: “Oh that? that’s nothing.” A further check of the object turned out to be a Listerine strip container which held two small bags of a white crystalline substance, which field-tested positive for meth 0.39 grams. Duffey was transported to the Williamson County Jail and is free on a $500 recog bond.
