An Oak Lawn man was cited for keeping a disorderly house at 3:15 and then two hours later was watching a guest be hauled off to jail for battery.
The police were first called to an apartment on 95th Street a few blocks west of Pulaski when a neighbor complained about noise from one of the units.
When the police arrived they described finding that source of disturbance in one of the units as “a number of homeless subjects drinking beer”. The resident of the unit, Dennis Bowman, said that he allowed the subjects to drink with him in his unit because they are “friends”. The police broke up the party and advised everyone but the resident of the unit to leave.
One of the individuals at the beer party, Jamie Hensley, had a guitar at Bowman’s apartment unit and the police asked him at that time did he want to take the guitar. He declined, according to the police.
Two hours later, the police were back at the apartment building when Hensley and his girlfriend, Barbara Turley, decided that they wanted to retrieve the guitar. They called the police claiming that they came back to the apartment and knocked on the door. According to their call, they were attacked by another man, who was friends with Bowman.
Bowman told the police that Hensley and Turley cam back and entered the unit without an invitation to do so. When he told them to leave, he claims that they both refused so his friend stepped in and insisted that they leave.
Despite the requests, according to Bowman and the friend, Hensley and Turley refused to leave. Bowman’s friend tried to physically remove both Hensley and Turley but this caused Hensley to assume a “fighting stance” and allegedly charge at the man bumping chests and swinging fists. Not to be outdone, Turley allegedly grabbed a bowl of spaghetti and threw it at Bowman’s friend, hitting him in the chest and staining his shirt.
Hensley, a 40 year old white male, was charged with battery. Turley, a 53 year old white woman was charged with battery also. Turley provided a Bridgeview address and Hensley was listed as homeless. Hensley and Turley were both charged with criminal trespass to property.
Dennis Bowman, a 48 year old white male, the resident of the property was cited for keeping a disorderly home. The friend who was hit with the spaghetti was not charged.
All of the arrests and citations took place on Wednesday April 11th.
