Wrigleyville: Accusations of Broken Jaw, Fractured Teeth, Knock-Out Chokehold Bring Felony Charges

Pete Slowik (inset) was charged this week with battering two men in a Wrigleyville bar early on January 1.

Allegations of a violent attack inside a Clark Street bar early on New Year’s Day have resulted in felony charges being filed against a Wrigleyville man.

Pete Slowik, 33, of the 1100 block of West Roscoe turned himself in at Area North police headquarters Monday evening after being informed of the charges filed against him.

Prosecutors said that Slowik punched a 34-year-old Lakeview man to the floor of the bar around 1:45 a.m. on January 1 and then stood over the victim and socked him two more times in the mouth, fracturing the man’s jaw and knocking out four teeth.

Slowik also put a 33-year-old man into a choke hold, preventing the second man from breathing and rendering him unconscious, prosecutors allege.

Police and prosecutors list 3485 North Clark, home of Stretch Bar & Grill, as the address where the alleged attack took place.

Judge Michael Clancy set bail for Slowik at $10,000. Slowik was released after posting a 10% deposit, according to court records.
