Success - Article sent! close

A 25-year-old Palatine man, who police say resisted arrest after a disturbance last month, pleaded guilty to the charge.

In exchange for Andrew Castillo's guilty plea to the misdemeanor charge, Cook County Judge Joel Greenblatt sentenced him to one year of conditional discharge, which is similar to probation, and ordered him to perform 100 hours of community service. Greenblatt also ordered Castillo to pay $349 in fines, court records show.

Authorities say officers responding to a call of a domestic disturbance encountered Castillo kicking an apartment door and yelling at the occupants. Castillo refused to obey officers, who he reportedly tried to bite and head-butt, police said.
