Galesburg Police responded to the 500 block of Churchill to reports of a domestic battery early Friday morning.

43 year old James Harvey Senior, a friend of his and a woman were drinking before going back to Harvey's house.

Harvey's friend allegedly poured cocaine onto the kitchen counter top when, upon seeing the drugs, the woman attempted to leave the residence.

Harvey was arrested and charged Aggravated Assault and Unlawful Restraint.

He appeared in court Friday afternoon where bond was set at $25,000. Harvey indicated he would be hiring a private attorney.

He will be back in court Wednesday at 9 am. Police investigations are continuing.
