A Chicago man was arrested Wednesday night at the McDonald’s in the 1100 block of Howard Street in connection with aggravated battery of a police officer and resisting arrest, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

The 28-year-old man knocked two police officers into a bathroom changing station, Dugan said. The man then scratched the wrist, punched the chest and kicked the leg of one of the officers before being tased and subdued by the other officer.

The McDonald’s manager had initially called police to the restaurant because the man refused to leave the bathroom, insisting that he was still cleaning it, Dugan said. When the officers approached, the man left the bathroom and allowed the officers to enter, but then rushed the officers.

The man was charged with the aforementioned two felonies as well as misdemeanor battery.
