A Chicago resident was arrested Friday in connection with multiple traffic offenses, including one felony, near downtown Evanston.

The man was originally pulled over in the 1400 block of Oak Avenue after he disregarded traffic signs while crossing Ridge Avenue, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. When stopped, officers noted that his license had been revoked for driving under the influence.

He was charged with driving with a revoked license — a felony — and given citations for disobeying traffic control devices and lacking proof of insurance, Dugan said.

Evanston man arrested in connection with domestic battery

A 22-year-old Evanston resident was arrested Tuesday in connection with domestic battery in west Evanston.

Officers were called to the 1300 block of McDaniel Avenue in regard to a disturbance, Dugan said. The man and his 18-year-old brother were arguing when it escalated to a physical altercation.

Both men were wrestling and punching one another, but the man’s brother got his tooth knocked out, Dugan said. The man had scratches on his back and nose, and was subsequently charged with misdemeanor domestic battery.
