Ja'mal Green to plead not guilty on 5 felony charges

CHICAGO (WLS) -- A judge upheld charges against a Chicago activist accused of hitting a police officer and trying to take his gun Wednesday morning.

Chicago activist Ja'mal Green, 20, faces five felony charges after the incident during a protest against police shootings last month.

His attorney said Green will plead not guilty.

A judge has since lifted Green's curfew after Green posted bond. Green is no longer being electronically monitored and is allowed to post on social media.
