Bucket Boy Resists Arrest, Gets Tazed 3 Times In Wrigleyville

A 30-year-old South Shore man was tazed three times and now faces a long list of criminal charges after he refused to be arrested for performing as an unlicensed “bucket boy” in Wrigleyville, police say.

Jackson (Chicago Police Dept)
Cops say they first tried to arrest Nathan Jackson for banging on a white 5-gallon bucket outside of Slugger’s bar in the 3500 block of N. Clark Street on August 11. But, Jackson “pulled away and fled,” police said.

Four days later, the same officers saw Jackson playing the same bucket at the same location as before. They tried to arrest him again.

Jackson stiffened his arms and refused to comply with police commands to put his hands behind his back. Officers tazed Jackson three times as they struggled to take him into custody, according to an arrest report.

Now, Jackson’s charged with four counts of resisting police and two counts of street performing without a license.

Court records show that Jackson was sentenced to two years in prison for resisting police in 2014 and six years for heroin distribution in 2007.

Police say Jackson is a member of the Gangster Disciples street gang. He's being held in lieu of $3,000 bail.

    1. That would've sobered up Keith Moon and made him more dangerous!

  8. I understand that he didn't have the appropriate license and was resisting arrest, but at least he wasn't assaulting pedestrians or robbing people. I'd rather have our police prevent or arrest violent criminals than spend time on these nuissance performers.

    1. why not go ask him what he does when he is done banging on a plastic bucket at night and still in your neighborhood? start asking yourself which one of these things is not like the other which one of these things just doesn't belong and give that thing, or person a lil more vigilance. your gut is probably correct and no you are not profiling.

    2. Ummmmm....sounds very very close to criticism of police.
      We can't have that now, can we?
      Might be time for some asbestos underwear.

    3. Bucket boys from down south were known for robberies and snatching money from people giving them a smaller donation than they feel they deserve. Don't worry about the "criticism" comment. I just smile, waive and let the bucket boys do their thang.
