BOYSTOWN: Man Charged With Brandishing Handgun During Dumpster Dispute

A Highland Park man is accused of brandishing a handgun during a verbal altercation over placement of garbage in a Boystown dumpster.

Court records say police were unable to locate a handgun.

Driscoll is free on a $10,000 I-Bond. He is due back in court tomorrow.

    1. Probably is a landlord in Boystown and lives in burbs. I own a building that I pay for garbage pickup and if I catch someone fly dumping I will always say something not nice to the ahole. However, I would never pull out a gun.

  2. Since no gun was recovered I'm doubting whether that actually happened.
