(Pekin, IL) — A Pekin police officer is facing charges of aggravated battery and official misconduct after authorities say he slapped a handcuffed minor during a July arrest. Nathan Ujinski was indicted last week in Tazewell County court. He is accused of hitting a juvenile in the head and face last month after he insulted the officer. Ujinski has been on unpaid leave since the incident.
