A former College of Lake County student was charged after attacking two school employees and committing a hate crime, according to the Lake County State's Attorney. 

Jason D. May torn down a Pride flag hanging at a CLC employee's desk on June 15. As he tried to take the flag there was a struggle between him and the staff member. Another CLC employee tried to intervene, and May hit both of them.

CLC police were called. May was later arrested  

May, who was a student at CLC at the time, has been held at the Lake County Jail on $50,000 cash bond since June 17. Prosecutors sought a bond of $150,000, but that request was denied.
