Legal troubles have worsened for two men accused of serious wrongdoing along the Clark Street bar strip recently.

Playoff Pistol

Hoytuan Pierce, the 31-year-old who is accused of firing a gun near the intersection of Clark and Cornelia as a Cubs playoff victory celebration wound down has been slapped with a number of additional charges.

Originally charged with reckless discharge of a firearm and being an armed habitual criminal, Pierce is now facing 11 separate felony charges: Armed habitual criminal; two counts of being a felon in possession of a weapon; one charge of using a firearm while on parole; four counts of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon; possession of a firearm by a gang member; and two counts of reckless discharge of a firearm.

Pierce, who was on parole at the time of the incident was immediately returned to prison after the incident.

TBOX Trouble

A 23-year-old man who's accused of putting his hand down a woman's pants despite her objections during last month's TBOX bar crawl in Wrigleyville is also facing more charges.

Initially charged with criminal sexual abuse, Sudhanshu Agrawal now faces two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse; one count of aggravated battery in a public place; and two counts of other forms of criminal sexual abuse.
