- A 66-year-old man is in a police lockup early Thursday, expected to be charged with battery after he punched a man in the mouth for stealing his Thanksgiving turkey Wednesday night on the South Side.
About 11 p.m., a man ran into the Englewood District police station at 6120 S. Racine Ave. asking for help. The man had been punched in the face on a street near the station in a dispute over a Thanksgiving turkey, according to Englewood District police.
The 66-year-old man had won the turkey and the victim allegedly stole the bird and and planning on selling it. The 66-year-old responded by punching the man, who was allegedly a "drinking buddy," police said.
And we know exactly what this "drinking buddy" was going to spend his ill gotten proceeds on.
