Patrons of the Wieners Circle hot dog stand are accustomed to receiving insults with their meals. But not like this.
A 49-year-old convicted murderer is accused of threatening another man at the landmark dog stand, 2622 North Clark, last night.
Police were called around 9:45 p.m. after Tron Williams allegedly threw a punch at the victim but missed. “I’m going to kick your ass,” Williams reportedly said, “but I don’t want no gunplay.”
He has been released after posting a $1,000 deposit bond, according to court records.
A former member of the Gangster Disciples, Williams lives in Rogers Park and now denies any affiliation with the gang, police said. He reportedly works at a restaurant near the Wieners Circle.
In 1998, Williams and three other men were accused of killing a 14-year-old girl while she was babysitting on the Southwest Side. Prosecutors said Williams and his accomplices broke into the home and killed the girl because they wanted marijuana that was inside the house.
He received a 30-year sentence for murder and 15 years for home invasion, according to court records.
