A Forest Park man was arrested on the night of Dec. 1 for allegedly causing a disturbance and then obstructing an officer’s attempt to intervene in the situation.

Witnesses told police that 26-year-old Timothy Wysocki Jr. was drunk and acting belligerent inside a house on the 400 block of Ferdinand Avenue.

Officers were called and while they were interviewing a witness, Wysocki emerged from the house with a bolt of King Cobra Malt Liquor, the report states.

Wysocki was allegedly acting drunk and refused to put down the bottle after being ordered to do so several times. He reportedly demanded that officers arrest him.

Wysocki was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and obstructing a peace officer.

 

Driving the wrong way, licenseless

Police arrested a local man on the afternoon of Dec. 3 for driving on a revoked license, after stopping him for almost running into two cars.

Fifty-three-year-old Jean Jeudy was pulled over after an officer saw him driving the wrong way down Thomas Avenue, near Madison Street, and almost running into two cars. She was stopped on the 7400 block of Madison Street, and when an officer checked the police database, it revealed the license was revoked.

Jeudy was arrested and received the revoked license charge, as well as improper lane usage.

A Cicero man with a suspended license was arrested, early Dec. 1, after he was caught driving, police allege.

Adalberto Raygoza, 24, was stopped at the intersection of Elgin Avenue and Roosevelt Road for driving the wrong way on Elgin.

When the officer interviewed Raygoza, he said, “I’m not even going to lie to you; my license is suspended.”

A police computer affirmed Raygoza’s statement and he was charged with driving with a suspended license, improper lane usage and operating a vehicle with suspended registration.

 

Over-the-counter theft

A Chicago man who allegedly tried to steal over $100 worth of over-the-counter drugs from a local pharmacy on the morning of Dec.4 was arrested and slapped with a retail theft charge.

According to police, 42-year-old Alonzo Adams was caught by CVS security trying to steal $114 worth of Mucinex, Zantac and Abreva.

He was apprehended by security as he tried to leave the 7126 Circle Ave. store and held until police arrived.

Adams was taken to the station and charged.

These items were obtained from the records of the Forest Park Police Department, Nov. 28-Dec. 4 and represent a portion of the incidents to which police responded. Unless otherwise indicated, anyone else named in the report has only been charged with a crime.
