• 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.
