Indictment in Haley Reinhart bar brawl
Prosecutors on Thursday announced an indictment against a Palatine man who they accuse of choking a patron during a brawl last month at Lamplighter Inn Tavern & Grille in Palatine.
Adam Sobanski, 32, faces two counts of aggravated battery, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison.
After a bouncer argued with 30-year-old Alan Chislof -- who was at the bar with his girlfriend and a group of friends that included pop singer and Wheeling native Haley Reinhart -- prosecutors say Sobanski rushed the man and put him in a headlock.
A TMZ.com video shows Chislof being restrained by several men. It also shows Sobanski, in a purple shirt, with his hand at Chislof's throat.
Reinhart, 26, was charged with misdemeanor battery.
