Share post:

JOLIET, Ill. — What started as an ordinary evening Wednesday in Joliet took a bizarre turn on North Chicago Street. An innocuous act of rummaging through trash rapidly escalated into a full-blown altercation involving none other than the town’s top cop.

According to Joliet police officers were alerted to an odd disturbance around 6:30 p.m. Joshua Medina, 39, seemed to have taken a peculiar interest in the contents of a private garbage can. But the situation spiraled when staff from neighboring restaurant intervened, leading Medina to retaliate physically against the establishment’s owner.

Joliet Police Chief Bill Evans, who just happened to be nearby, moved in to arrest the aggressive trash diver, Medina made his most shocking move yet, striking the chief and biting his pinky finger in the chaos that ensued.
