The director of the anti-violence program CeaseFire was released from jail Saturday night after posting bond on a domestic battery charge

Police arrested Tio Hardiman, 50, on Friday after his wife filed a formal complaint.

His wife claimed Hardiman punched and kicked her, leaving her with a swollen lip, bruises and a cut on her neck.

She plans to seek an order of protection.

A bond court judge set bail at $20,000.

CeaseFire organization officials placed Hardiman on administrative leave, pending the outcome of his case.

Cook County records show Hardiman has a 1999 conviction for misdemeanor domestic battery.

Hardiman is expected for a court appearance in Maywood on Tuesday.
