EJECTED: Parolee Charged With Firing Gun In Wrigleyville

A three-time convicted violent felon who was released from prison on parole this summer is charged with firing a handgun on Clark Street as the Cubs victory celebration wound down last night.

Dolton resident Hoytuan Pierce, 31, is charged with reckless discharge of a firearm and with being an armed habitual criminal, according to court records. Bond is set at $250,000.

Chicago police witnessed the incident outside of Roadhouse 66, 3478 N. Clark, at 11:33PM Tuesday. Pierce and two others were taken into custody and a weapon was recovered, police said.

Pierce is currently on parole after serving part of a one-year sentence for his second DUI. His previous convictions include robbery in 2002, aggravated battery of a government employee in 2005, and being a felon in possession of a firearm in 2012.

Information about the other two individuals taken into custody with Pierce was not immediately available. UPDATE: The other two persons were found to be victims in the incident, according to a CWB Reader.

  3. The ugly woman who fired 5 shots on Halsted last weekend was released in 8 hours. This guy only fired one shot, so it would seem that is less of an offense.

  4. And they will parole him again. These corrupt judges ought to be going to jail along with them.

    1. If the judges want to keep giving them probation, etc, then the judges should take them into their own homes.

    1. Illinois is already a big fan of mandatory minimum sentencing; it's not working at all.

  7. The other two were victims of an aggravated assault, not offenders, as the investigation progressed.

  8. How dumb can you be to shoot off a gun in the ONLY place in the whole neighborhood where there actually is a decent police presence? Sadly, his stupidity will probably be rewarded with a few months in prison and he'll be right back out there terrorizing us.

  9. You can't vote for these judges if you are in prison. So, the answer is early release or probation.
