THE CUFFING OF THE GREEN: Let's Meet Some Of Wrigleyville's St. Patrick's Weekend Arrestees

Say hello to some of the 17 men and women who got arrested during this weekend's St. Patrick's disaster in Wrigleyville.

• Frank A. "Tony" Wadas of Hoffman Estates was donning a sweatshirt with the word "WHISKEY" stitched on its chest in 3-inch letters for his mugshot after becoming Saturday's first arrestee. Charged with battery and resisting police, Wadas was allegedly seen drinking a can of beer on the sidewalk outside of Moe's Cantina. When a police sergeant took the can away, Wadas allegedly smacked the officer's hand, grabbed his beer back, and then tried to punch the sergeant. He missed. Wadas, 24, is charged with battery and resisting police.

• Some local residents say they saw 20-year-old police K9 dog trainer Sam Tortorella kick over garbage cans behind a home in the 1200 block of Newport Saturday afternoon, so they told him to "respect their neighborhood" and stop being disruptive. Tortorella "became enraged" and punched two of the neighbors in their faces, causing each to suffer chipped teeth, court filings say. A third victim was allegedly "slapped about the face and chest" by Tortorella, who is now charged with three counts of battery.

• Brock Duerson, 25, of Highland Park is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he allegedly approached a man on the dance floor at Sluggers bar and, without provocation, "placed a knife to the victim's chest [without] saying a word." No knife was recovered.

Acevedo (Ill. Dept. of Corrections)
• Four individuals who occupied the same car are charged with mob action after police say they saw the group stop their car in the middle of Clark Street to "yell inciting gang slogans and flash gang hand signals at rival gang members" who were walking down the sidewalk. Police say the other group walked away when officers intervened, but Jacqueline Rojas, 35; Crystal Arzuaga, 27; Luis Roman, 30; and Manuel Acevedo, 42, refused to disperse. Roman is also charged with three driving-related offenses.

    3. Well, according to his Facebook, he works for Superior Canine Services, which is owned by someone with the same last name a his, so I'm assuming his career there is not in jeopardy.

    3. "It seems tough guy Sam Tororella is hiding, his twitter and Facebook now hidden/down."

      LOL!!!! Hiding his twitter.
      He can hide his twitter, but there's a forever-and-ever permanent record of his St Patricks Weekend antics now, carved in stone right here on the webs and internets.

    1. I think you're right. According to this tribune article he should be 25 now: http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-02-11/sports/ct-spt-0212-duerson-bears-chicago--20120211_1_dave-duerson-tregg-alicia-duerson

  4. No local offenders? They all seem to be from out of town.

    1. My thoughts exactly! It seems that we have been giving grief to the area residents when, in fact, it is the suburban fratboys, lowriders, and red line hoodlums wreaking havoc the whole time!

      Delete
    2. Vote the district dry! That'll keep the fratboys away. And without the easy drunken marks, I'm betting the red line hoodlums will stop coming too.

      Might lose a bit of tax revenue though.

    3. "Vote the district dry!" Yeah, that's a great idea. That way we'll have a bunch of empty storefronts so that blight can take over and exacerbate the criminal element tenfold!

    4. A "dry" campaign, even if not carried through to vote, would have the effect of getting the businesses' attention and residents could win concessions and operating assurances..
