SATURDAY, JAN. 26
Police were on patrol in the Orland Square Mall parking around 6:30 p.m., when they were approached by two different people both describing an intoxicated man shouting at people nearby in the lot. Police then heard a car alarm nearby coming from a Ford found with marks from being kicked and hit with an open hand, police said. Police then found a man swaying as he walked near the Ford in the parking lot, and refused to show police his ID, according to the report. The officer took the ID, and then held the man by his chest as he walked toward him to keep him from approaching closer, before the man pushed away the police officer’s arm, and then was restrained, police said. Clinton A. Anders, 34, of the first block of West Walnut Street in Coal City, was charged with battery.
