Here are the details on a few recent arrestees in the neighborhood, according to Cook County Criminal Court records:
• Jefferson Park resident Jeffrey Nagamine, 24, was arrested in Wrigleyville early Sunday morning after allegedly breaking three front windows of the Cubby Bear with his bare hands.
In court records, police say Nagamine was escorted out of the iconic Wrigleyville club by staff, but then returned and went wild on $15,000 worth of windows. Cubby Bear staff flagged down officers who caught up with Nagamine, “who was bleeding from both hands and elbows” at the nearby Taco Bell and made the arrest.
Also arrested? Nagamine’s 23-year-old girlfriend, Patricia Ordinario. Officers allege that she was told “four times” to stop obstructing the arrest of her boyfriend but “walked up and pushed” a police officer instead.
Nagamine, who was treated at Illinois Masonic Medical Center, is charged with one count of criminal damage and two counts of resisting a police officer. His girlfriend is charged with one count of battery and one count of resisting a police officer. Both are free on $1,500 bond.
• Derrick C. Cooper was arrested in connection with the alleged theft of a purse from Old Crow Smokehouse in Wrigleyville on August 10. His bigger legal problem, though, appears to stem from his alleged possession of illegal drugs at the time of his arrest. Cooper is being held on $50,000 bond.
• 22-year-old Evilio Garcia of the Montclare neighborhood has been charged with battery and urinating on the public way. A North Halsted security guard claims he saw a “highly intoxicated” Garcia urinating near Halsted and Roscoe early Sunday morning. When the guard confronted Garcia, court records say, Garcia “kicked him in the right knee, causing him to fall to the ground.” The 43-year-old guard refused medical attention.
• Finally, 19-year-old Don Harris was charged with having a 4-inch lock blade knife when he was arrested in Boystown on August 8. According to police, Harris was one of several people who were stopped for allegedly attempting to gain entrance to a resident’s yard in the 700 block of Melrose. Police say Harris told them that he had the knife “for protection because he has had trouble on Halsted.” Harris was released on $120 bail.
