An Arlington Heights man was convicted Wednesday for a 2017 incident in which he brought a loaded gun to the residence of someone he had a previous relationship with, according to a news release from the Kane County state's attorney's office.

Timothy M. Monty, of the 3400 block of Stonegate Drive, arrived at his ex's Batavia home around 5 p.m. July 13, 2017, the release said.

Monty, 45, tried to enter the residence through the garage, but when he couldn't get in, he started banging on the front door and shouting, according to the release.

A person inside the home -- who wasn't aware of the commotion outside -- opened the door, the release said.

The victim, who had called 911 soon after Monty had arrived at the home, told him not to come inside but he did anyway and began yelling at them, according to the release.

Monty's yelling got so heated that at one point his face was touching the victim's face, the release said.

Eventually, after multiple requests, Monty left and police arrived a short time later, according to the release.

Monty was found guilty of criminal trespass to residence and domestic battery, the release said.

He is now ineligible for a FOID card and Concealed Carry License and faces a sentence of probation or between one and three years imprisonment, according to the release.

Monty's sentencing hearing is set for 1:30 p.m. on April 18.
