There was a time when Pachino B. Hill made a name for himself with his fists in the squared circle.
But the 23-year-old former Golden Gloves boxer is far from the ring after he turned himself in Tuesday to face charges of second-degree criminal mischief, conspiracy to commit a non-forcible felony, assault causing bodily injury and participating in a riot.
While Hill turned himself in, the Scott County Sheriff’s Department said three of his alleged accomplices are in the wind. Deputies are looking for Alfred McCollum, 26; Kali Arrington, 25; and Coby Lamont, 19. All three of the young men are from Davenport and face the same charges as Hill.
According to Scott County Sheriff’s deputies, Hill, McCollum, Arrington and Lamont attended a George Floyd awareness protest at the Scott County Courthouse around 5:50 p.m. May 30.
The deputies claimed Hill and three others threw rocks at the courthouse, which broke windows and caused more than $8,000 in damage. The deputies said a large crowd gathered at the courthouse and had to flee in multiple directions, including into traffic on 4th Street.
Hill was booked into the Scott County Jail the morning of June 3. He was released a short time later and placed under the supervision of the Department of Correctional Services.
The criminal mischief and conspiracy charges are Class D felonies punishable by up to five years in prison, while the riot charge is an aggravated misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison. The assault charge is a serious misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.
Hill won two Iowa Golden Gloves state championships at the age of 17 and in 2017 participated in the national Golden Gloves tournament in Lafayette, Louisiana.
