Police arrested a 42-year-old Chicago man Monday afternoon in connection with assault and criminal trespass of property.

Police responded to reports of a man harassing a bartender at the Bar Louie, 1520 Sherman Ave. An Evanston Police Department officer arrived at the scene and found the Chicago man intoxicated, said Evanston police Cmdr. Ryan Glew.

Glew said the man made racist comments toward the bartender and refused to leave the restaurant. Police escorted the man out of the building but he refused to give his name or identification card to officers, instead handing them a library card, Glew said.

At one point the man began advancing toward the officer, making the officer feel threatened. The officer pinned the man against the Bar Louie door breaking the glass.

Officers placed the man under arrest and charged him with assault and criminal trespass to property.
