A man wreaks havoc in two bars


A 26-year-old man from Elmwood Park was arrested after making a scene at two bars on Madison Street late at night on December 20 and early the next day.

Forest Park Police were initially told a brew fight had broken down between two patrons in the 7400 block of Madison, but were called back to the bar less than an hour later when one of the patrons started throwing bar stools and breaking things. The man was sent on his way.

Officers then ran through the man’s name in a criminal database, discovered a warrant for his arrest from another jurisdiction, and followed him to a second bar, also in the 7400 block of Madison. The man had apparently also previously been intruding on this location and warned not to return.

When a bartender asked the man to leave in the early morning of December 21, he allegedly grabbed a pint and threw it at her, hitting her in the face and upper chest, then ran out the back door .

Officers eventually arrested the man in the 300 block of Burkhardt Court. He was charged with assault, resisting arrest and criminal trespassing.

This information was obtained from police reports filed by the Forest Park Police Department. Unless otherwise stated, anyone named in these reports has only been charged with one crime. These cases have not been judged.
