A man lashed out when he was refused the right to rent a video game console, shouting obscenities and threatening employees, said.
Duan Lewis, 18, of 506 Whitley Ave. was charged with disorderly conduct in connection with the 2:45 p.m. Monday incident at the 2128 W. Jefferson St. rental place.
For some reason, staff at the Rent-A-Center rejected Lewis when he tried to rent a video game console. Apparently upset by this, Lewis erupted with a vulgar outburst and threatened to return to the business to "get" people, police said.
When the law showed up, Lewis was verbally abusive to officers as well, police said, and he was arrested.
Lewis was released on his own recognizance.
A pair of brothers were arrested for allegedly brawling on Wesmere Parkway.
Justin Reid, 39, of 28 W. 473 Main St. in Warrenville and Brandon Reid, 34, of 2201 Pontiac Circle in Naperville both were charged with battery and disorderly conduct in connection with the 8 a.m. Monday incident. Justin Reid was also hit with a charge of resisting or obstructing a police officer.
The Reids, along with another man, were driving along Wesmere Parkway when Justin Reid became upset and leaped out of the moving vehicle, police said.
Brandon Reid then got out of the (stopped) vehicle and tried to convince his brother to get back inside, police said.
He apparently failed to entice him and the brothers started fighting, police said. When officers arrived, both Reids reportedly had blood on their hands and clothes.
After he was handcuffed, Justin Reid threatened to harm himself and damage a squad car, police said, so officers shackled his ankles as well.
Justin Reid was uncooperative while he was being booked, police said, and appeared to pass out in a holding cell.
Fire department paramedics were called to the police station to check him out, police said, but Justin Reid woke up and refused to be treated.
The Reids were released on their own recognizance.
