NITWIT: Workers Battered On Scaffolding Outside 48th Floor Apartment

The 48th floor of the Park Place Tower condominium building.

Workers on scaffolding outside the 48th floor of an Irving Park high rise got the scare of their lives this morning when an irate resident allegedly pelted them with eggs, a stuffed animal, and a broom stick in an effort to get them to be quiet so he could get some sleep.

When that didn’t work, building management alleges, the resident—who bartends at a swanky rooftop lounge in the Loop—began pulling on the scaffolding’s ropes!

Police arrived at the 655 W. Irving Park address around 11:30AM and were given access to the bartender’s unit.

There, the sleepy headed night owl was arrested for battery. CPD case HX356884. Charges are pending.
