Three men, including two from Aurora, who allegedly fought with employees of a downtown Naperville bar and then tried to escape from police have been arrested on a variety of charges, including a drunken-driving citation for the man behind the wheel of their getaway car.
Ricardo P. Cisneros, 24, of Romeoville; and Oscar M. Rodriguez, 28, and Jose E. Rodriguez, 26, both of Aurora, are free on bond and awaiting trial on misdemeanor charges in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton, according to court records.
Naperville police arrested the men inside Cisneros’ blue, 2002 Isuzu Rodeo sport utility vehicle, following the fracas at Rizzo’s, at 6 W. Jefferson Ave.
Written police reports indicated the trouble began shortly after midnight Friday, the morning after Oscar Rodriguez’s birthday.
“The incident started when an employee accidentally bumped into” Oscar Rodriguez, police Sgt. Bill Davis said. Oscar Rodriguez allegedly “became aggressive towards the employee, (and) all three subjects were asked to leave” the premises, Davis wrote Tuesday in an e-mail.
Oscar Rodriguez a short time later allegedly “attempted to get back inside, and started to fight with employees, resulting in minor injuries” to one of the workers, Davis said. Police were called to the scene after all three men allegedly became involved in the fighting, he said.
Cisneros and the Rodriguezes “fled the area prior to officers’ arrival,” Davis said.
Their descriptions were broadcast to other police in the area, with one officer soon after spotting and curbing the SUV allegedly being driven by Cisneros.
“All three subjects were identified as being involved in the altercation” with the Rizzo’s workers, Davis said.
Court records showed Cisneros was charged with DUI, battery causing bodily harm, battery and improper vehicular lighting, for having a broken taillight on his SUV.
The Rodriguezes face trial on charges of battery causing bodily harm and battery, according to court records. Oscar Rodriguez is also charged with criminal trespass to land, for allegedly trying to re-enter the bar after having been ejected.
An examination of court documents revealed Cisneros spent four days in Will County Jail in Joliet, following his Aug. 1, 2008 arrest in Bolingbrook on a charge of felony theft.
The charge in January 2009 was reduced to a misdemeanor, records indicated. In addition to the jail stint, Cisneros was placed on three months of conditional discharge and ordered to make $1,400 restitution, records showed.
Neither Oscar Rodriguez nor Jose Rodriguez appeared to have a criminal record in DuPage, Will or Kane counties. It could not be learned what relationship, if any, exists between the two men, who have the same address.
