Rene Garibay, 19, of Niles was charged with violating an order of protection Saturday just before 8:30 a.m., when a man told police he saw Garibay yelling and holding a brick at the back gangway of a townhome complex on Grand, police said.
Garibay was yelling at people inside a residence across from the witness, and a 26-year-old man from that residence stepped outside and the two began yelling at each other, police said. According to the police report, Garibay took his clothes off and ran eastbound from the area, only to be found by police a few minutes later. He had a swollen right eye, and said he had been out partying and was walking home; he alo said he had been jumped by two men he didn't know, police reported. They also said he was intoxicated and belligerent.
A resident of the townhome complex has a valid legal order of protection against Garibay, and he is not allowed in the vicinity. The Niles Fire Department took Garibay to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital to have his eye treated. His court date is pending.
Gas station sold tobacco to minor
Working with a 14-year-old volunteer, and under the auspices of the Illinois Liquor Commission, Niles police did a tobacco compliance check on a gas station in the 9000 block of Milwaukee Avenue. They had received previous complaints of sales to minors at this location, according to the report.
The 14-year-old asked for a pack of Marlboro cigarettes, police said, and the clerk asked for ID. The teen provided a state of Illinois ID card, which had a red label indicating the holder was under 18 years old, according to the report. The clerk rang up the sale and gave the teen his change, police said. The teen exited the store and gave the cigarettes to a waiting police officer. Police issued the offender a ticket and forwarded a writeup of the incident to the Liquor Commission.
