The most interesting man? Even the most interesting story?
Not in Oak Lawn where daily arrests and ordinance violations stir up stories more interesting with real crime. While the man charged may not be the most interesting man, he had an interesting response telling his side of the story in a dispute with another driver.
In a recent case, a man driving on Cicero Avenue at about 107th contacted the Oak Lawn Dispatch to report that he thought he was being followed by a Chevy Trailblazer. The caller said that while waiting at a red light, the other driver stopped on his left and began waving his arms and yelling, “I’m going to kick your a..”.
When the light turned green, the caller continued on Cicero and noticed that the other driver allegedly began following him. The caller proceeded to the police station and told his story to the police. He told the police that he had not provoked the other driver and did not have a previous interaction with the driver that would have caused the problem.
The police were able to stop a Trailblazer matching the description and after a positive identification was made, the driver of the Trailblazer, identified as Brian Miller, denied having any interaction with the victim. However, Miller did allegedly state to the officer that he was rubbing his beard and was telling the victim that he also had a nice beard.
Miller was identified as a 34 year old black male with an address in Palos Hills. He was charged with “disorderly conduct”.
