A 26-year-old Elmwood Park man was arrested after making a scene at a pair of Madison Street bars late on the night of Dec. 20 and early the following day.
Forest Park police were initially notified that a brewing fight had dissipated between two customers in the 7400 block of Madison but were called back to the bar less than an hour later when one of the customers began throwing barstools and breaking things. The man was sent on his way.
Officers then ran the man’s name through a criminal database, discovered a warrant for his arrest from a different jurisdiction and followed him into a second bar, also in the 7400 block of Madison. The man had apparently also been previously trespassed from that location and warned not to return.
When a bartender asked the man to leave early on the morning of Dec. 21, he allegedly grabbed a pint glass 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 battery, resisting arrest and criminal trespassing.
This information was obtained from police reports filed by the Forest Park Police Department. Unless otherwise indicated, anybody named in these reports has only been charged with a crime. These cases have not been adjudicated.
