SMASHING BUMPKIN: “Grunge Rocker” Throws Coffee On Walgreens Guard


Remember our tidbit yesterday about a white guy with tattoos and dreadlocks who was said to be stealing tip jars near Clark and Diversey? It appears that he—or someone who looks very much like him—is an early riser.

Police were called to the new Walgreens at Clark and Diversey around 6:30 this morning after an irate customer threw an orange at the wall and hot coffee on a security guard.

The offender description? Male, white, dreadlocks, wearing a white t-shirt and jeans with red underwear sticking out. Another witness describes the man as a “grunge rocker” who sometimes carries a guitar.

The Walgreens incident is recorded as a battery in case HX287613.
