A Berwyn man charged with obstructing a police officer will have a hearing at the Maybrook Circuit Courthouse in Maywood on Wednesday, Dec. 12.
32-year-old Francisco J. Torres of the 1500 block of Cuyler Ave. faces one count of obstruction to a peace officer following a report of a man waving a gun at 16th St. and Cuyler Ave. early morning on Sunday Nov. 11.
As police arrived on the scene, Torres began to walk away, reaching into his pockets to pull out what allegedly looked like a black object. After an attempt at tasing the man, he was wrestled to the ground and placed in handcuffs. Officers found the object in Torres’ pocket to be a black leather money clip. No gun was found on either Torres or in the vehicle he had been a passenger in.
