Gun and Weed Arrest at Metro Station in Bourbonnais

Gun and Weed Arrest at Metro Station in Bourbonnais

Smoking pot is legal now in the state of Illinois, but you cannot smoke the weed in public and that includes the men’s room at the River Valley Metro Transit Authority Terminal on 5000 north road in Bourbonnais.  Especially if you have a gun hidden in your waistband.  A county sheriff’s deputy assigned to the transit station Monday caught 30 year old Jerome Simms in the bathroom with the weed allegedly in his possession.  A struggle then broke out between the two, but a Metro employee stepped in to assist the officer.  Police later found the gun on Simms during a pat down.  He’s charged with aggravated battery to a police officer and Unlawful use of a weapon.
