On Saturday, Sept. 9, Port Chester officers were called to El Palacio de Maria on North Main Street by an employee who stated that a man was under the influence of alcohol and had allegedly been attempting to start a fight with an employee.
The suspect was escorted outside at 12:16 a.m. where he allegedly struck the front window with his belt, damaging it. The cop issued a trespass warning, though the Parker Street resident refused to leave the area, allegedly causing a disturbance through yelling and engaging in tumultuous behavior.
He allegedly told officers that he would not leave and would rather be arrested, so the cop obliged. The 24-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct, a violation.
