Cabby Gets Slapped, Someone Steps In Shaka
A look at weird crime news in the northern Chicago suburbs.
Local police departments provided the following reports. In all incidents where an arrest occurred, a charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt.
A Chicago taxi driver called the police at 2 a.m. to report an Arlington Heights woman slapped the driver in the head when he asked her to sign a debit card receipt. The woman told police she did not realize the receipt was unsigned and she did not remember slapping the driver.
Buffalo Grove police found a shaka sign painted on the sidewalk.
A Niles woman was charged with domestic battery after pushing and scratching her 76-year-old grandmother's arm, causing a small laceration, over a sweater.
Men from Des Plaines and Evanston were charged with felony retail theft when security at a Niles store saw one of them wheeling a TV out of a store without paying for it. When police apprehended the men, there was another TV from the same store in the trunk of their van.
