• Felton B. Washington, 44, of the 1300 block of Monomoy Street, Aurora, was arrested at 9:42 a.m. Tuesday and charged with disorderly conduct at the Kane County Judicial Center, 37W777 Route 38, near St. Charles, according to a police report. Police said Washington "charged" up to a court clerk who was assisting another man and demanded to know where he was supposed to appear in court. After the clerk told him to wait in line, police said, Washington called her names and yelled profanities. He then went to a courtroom, where he was "mouthy" with a judge, and was later "unruly" in the hallway. Washington was arrested after pushing a police officer who asked him to leave.

• Marc Donald Richards, 39, of the 6500 block of High Lake Road in Land O' Lakes, Wis., was charged Tuesday with home repair fraud, stemming from an incident more than a year ago, according to a police report. Police said on Feb. 14 and March 2, 2009, Richards cashed checks totaling $8,572.41 for work to be performed on a house in the 300 block of Anderson Boulevard. The carpenter was to repair a door and woodwork, and replace windows. The homeowner filed a report with police in August, saying Richards never did the work, that she had last heard from him in June, and that his cell phone was disconnected. He was finally tracked down by police this week and was being held in the Kane County jail. He needs to pay $8,500 to be released.
