Laughing Text Gets Man Arrested After Warning
Orland Park man chose the wrong time to send one last message.
An Orland Park man, told by cops to stop calling, texting and harassing a woman, thought he'd get the last laugh.
But 21-year-old Antonio Aguilar's final text to her — "ha huh" — arrived while she was talking to police.
Police were called about threatening phone calls made to at about 11:20 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6, according to an Orland Park police report. A woman told police that she rejected Aguilar’s repeated advances, but he was calling and texting her repeatedly, making threats as he did so, police said.
Police then spoke with Aguilar and warned him not to make any further contact with the woman, according to the report. Officers then spoke with the woman a second time to verify a few details in their earlier conversation with her, and while doing so she received a text from him that read “ha huh,” according to the report.
Aguilar, of the 7800 block of Keystone Road in Orland Park, was arrested and charged with phone harassment.
