A 46 year old Oak Lawn woman woke up to discover that a man was in her apartment at 88th and Mobile. The man was a friend of the woman’s deceased daughter and he had previously been told not to be in the apartment.
She asked the man, later identified as Daniel Hines, to leave the apartment. He refused to leave and over six hours later was still in the apartment when the two began arguing. Hines allegedly threw a glass bottle at the woman and then allegedly punched her in the face according to the victim. The woman’s roommate interceded to stop Hines from attempting to throw dishes he had allegedly grabbed from the sink. The roommate also stopped Hines from punching the woman again. The Oak Lawn police were called.
While the officer was responding to the call, he was alerted to the fact that Daniel had left the apartment and was traveling on roller blades. Near 99th and Ridgeland, the officer spotted a roller blading enthusiast who matched the description of the man. Sure enough, it was Daniel Hines.
The police claim that Daniel told the police, “I didn’t touch her, she always wants to get me arrest(ed) for some bull….”. Another officer interviewed the two women at the apartment.
According to the police, Daniel had previously been given a “criminal trespass warning” that had not expired. The officer placed Daniel into custody for battery and criminal trespass, allegedly making Daniel upset according to the police. According to the police, Daniel allegedly struck his head on the cage in the squad car several times despite being told the stop and despite suffering pain in doing so. Daniel Hines allegedly refused medical treatment for his injured head.
The County Sheriff’s records indicate that there is a Daniel Hines in custody who is a 21 year old black male who is being held without any bond. It does not indicate if it is the same man but his custody date coincides with the arrest. Daniel Hines has a court date on August 3, 2017 at the Bridgeview Courthouse.
