Profane Teen Partygoer Invokes Chicago Heights Clout
A Chicago Heights teen uses colorful language to express his disapproval of Homewood police after he was caught drinking underage at a local party.
Police responded to a report of a loud party in the 18500 block of Poplar Avenue around 2:23 a.m. and discovered an underage drinker, according to the report.
The teen was one of a group of 20 to 30 who fled when police arrived, the report said. Noting a strong odor of alcohol, police asked the teen if he'd been drinking, and he responded, "you can't prove (profanity)." He then boasted that his "Chicago Heights" clout would get him released without charges, police said.
During the transport to station, the teen bragged that he would have the mayor of Chicago Heights fire the officer from his position, commenting, "You don’t know who you’re (profanity) with. My mom is a Chicago Heights police dispatcher, you know what I could do with you?”
Despite his clout claims, the teen is scheduled to appear in court on Aug. 8 in Markham.
