Disgusting Indiana Man Dumps on Oak Lawn Doesn’t Scoop
An Indiana man was given a village ordinance violation citation for “defecating” near the baseball fields at Sullivan Park. A witness had told the police she was driving southbound on Kostner Avenue near the park when she saw a man bent over “relieving” himself at about 6:30 p.m. on Sunday April 1st. Knowing it was April Fool’s Day, the police were cautious when they spotted a man near the scene of the dumping incident. The police stopped a man matching the description and a positive identification was made. Patrick Mattes, a 24 year old white male from Lowell, Indiana was given the ticket. The question to ponder is whether the Village’s Adjudicator can at least order such an offender to clean it up since we have to clean up after our dogs.

The police say that the radar registered 63 miles per hour in a 30 mile per hour zone. The police stopped the driver, Carlos Rodriguez and then arrested him for not having a valid license and for aggravated speeding. Rodriguez, a 24 year old white male, provided a Chicago address.
Oak Lawn Man Wanders From Home In Car
The Oak Lawn police were traveling northbound on Southwest Highway, approaching 95th Street when the officer noticed a vehicle headed the other direction on Southwest Highway at what the officer thought was a high rate of speed. A check of the radar caught the driver hitting 53 MPH in the 30 MPH zone.
The officer made a U-turn at about 6 a.m. on March 31st and stopped the driver, who provided valid insurance but had a suspended driver’s license, which ordinarily means you can’t be driving. The man, a resident of Oak Lawn, was arrested for driving on a suspended license. The man was identified as Larnell Lewis, a 43 year old black male, who provided an Oak Lawn address to the officers.
