Charges filed in domestic battery case

A 36-year old Wheeling man was charged with aggravated domestic battery and one count of aggravated domestic battery involving strangling following an argument with his now ex-girlfriend, a 38-year-old woman from Wheeling.  Police reports say the woman became upset because after an argument his car was blocking hers.  Reports say she tried to wake the man by slapping and punching him. The argument continued later in the day during which time the man said the woman tried to retrieve firearms from his backpack.  He told police he had to physically restrain her to keep her from getting to the backpack. The woman said the man choked her during the struggle but did not want to press charges.  She also admitted to striking him earlier in the day. The couple was staying at a home on Highland Grove in Buffalo Grove while its owners were on vacation.
Fraud – A resident went to use her Macy’s card, which she thought had a zero balance, but found there was a $1,800 purchase on it.
Noise complaint --- A resident in the 700 block of Grove Drive complained about noise coming from neighboring children.  She was told to discuss the matter with the homeowners’ association.
The Grinch lives – A resident in the 600 block of Dunhill Drive reported that his Christmas lights valued at $70 were stolen.
Buzzed out – A resident called police about a noise coming from an adjoining apartment.  Police found that air trapped in a toilet fill valve was causing a plumbing vibration. The officer opened the value to stop the noise.  At least it was children making the noise.
Stupid is, as stupid does – Slow week on the roads.  Police report one arrest for DUI, and one for operating a motor vehicle without a license.
