Oak Lawn Police officers responded to a call at Cooper’s Hawk in Oak Lawn on Wednesday night. The restaurant/bar had “cut off” two females from receiving any more alcohol and asked the ladies to leave according to the police.
The officers spoke to the two women and explained that the restaurant could press charges for trespass if they refused to leave. The two women reportedly left the restaurant but about twenty minutes later, one of the women returned and so did the police.
The woman, identified as Tiphany Butler, allegedly returned and began yelling at the bartender. The police contend that the bar area was filled with witnesses.
The responding officer spoke with Butler, who claimed she was never told she had to leave the first time. The officer claims he told Butler multiple times that she had to leave and she refused. She was arrested for criminal trespass to property after the restaurant signed a complaint. Butler is a 44 year old black female who provided a Country Club Hills address to the police.
On February 1st, at 5 a.m. an officer was parked when he saw a green Honda traveling westbound on 99th Street. The car, driven by Maria Rocha Casas, allegedly failed to stop at the stop sign and then allegedly turned right without using a signal.
Despite driving and allegedly failing to follow basic traffic laws, Casas also failed to have a valid driver’s license. The officer placed her under arrest for driving without a valid license. Casas is a 38 year old Hispanic female with a Cicero address.
Later that morning, officers were patrolling on Southwest Highway near Central Avenue and conducted a random license plate check of a vehicle in front of the squad. The vehicle registration came back to a juvenile sex offender who had not registered in time.
The vehicle turned into the parking lot of Oak Lawn High School and the officer followed. Eventually, the officer made contact with the driver, who was not the owner of the vehicle.
The driver of the vehicle, Robert Jones was going to school to get his cousin registered for classes. The officer checked Jones identification and found that he did not have a valid driver’s license and had two outstanding warrants for his arrest. One warrant was for retail theft in DuPage County and one was for obstructing identification in Kane County. Jones, a 25 year old black male with an Aurora address, was arrested.
On that same day, the police were called to 6346 W. 95th Street for a “disturbance”. The officer arrived to find Kelly Zegar in the parking lot outside of Penny’s, a gaming café.
A representative of Penny’s told the police officer that Zegar comes to Penny’s a lot and he knows that he needs identification to enter. When he couldn’t produce identification, the representative said he could not enter.
According to the Penny’s representative, Zegar became upset and was yelling and allegedly swearing. According to the Penny’s employee, Zegar said “get the ‘Fword’ out of my face. I will slap your b…h ass!” Zegar then reportedly walked into a different business.
Zegar will have to lose his money elsewhere because the police told Zegar he is no longer welcome in the gaming café. He was issued a citation for disorderly conducted and given a criminal trespass warning. Zegar is a 36 year old white male and provided an Oak Lawn address to police officers.
