The other man who was ordered Monday to take a paternity test was present in juvenile court with his attorney, sources said.

He had been in custody at the McHenry County jail since December until late May after being arrested and charged for allegedly attacking a security guard and two nurses at a hospital, according to court records.

He pleaded guilty May 22. He was given two years of probation and released on time served. On Tuesday, the man was back in jail after failing a drug test, jail officials confirmed.

A charging document in December lists his address as the same home on Dole Avenue in Crystal Lake where AJ Freund lived with his parents, who were not married.

Authorities alleged that on April 18 Andrew Freund made a false 911 call reporting AJ missing. A massive search for the boy was conducted until about a week later when his body was found.
