A man from Naperville has been placed on court supervision and fined for slapping a bartender in the city’s downtown last Easter, after she refused to serve him more alcohol.
Kyle F. Goro, 26, lives on the 1200 block of Lakewood Circle, in the Lakewood Crossing area of far west-central Naperville. He pleaded guilty in the DuPage County Circuit Court’s Wheaton Field Court to one of two city of Naperville charges of fighting in a public place.
The bartender did not appear Wednesday in court to testify against Goro, leading to the dismissal of one of the counts, court records showed. The other count had been filed by police.
Associate Judge Mary E. O’Connor accepted Goro’s plea. She placed him on an unspecified period of court supervision and ordered him to pay $180 in fines and court costs, according to records.
Goro was arrested about 12:30 a.m. April 20 at Bar Louie, at 22 E. Chicago Ave., in downtown Naperville’s restaurant and nightclub district. Police Sgt. Bill Davis in April said Goro “was refused service there for being intoxicated.”
“(He) then became upset, and reached over the bar and slapped the bartender in the face,” Davis said. The bartender was not seriously injured.
Davis said Goro then left the bar, only to try to get back in a few minutes later. Security workers kept him out “because of his intoxication level,” Davis said.
He then “argued with security and tried to push his way past them,” which led to his arrest, Davis said.
Court records indicated Goro in November 2006 was ordered to perform 50 hours of community service work and placed on a year of court supervision, after leaving the scene of a traffic crash he caused earlier that summer in Naperville. He has no record in Kane and Will counties.
Goro was one of seven men who were arrested for fighting or drunkenness in downtown Naperville during a 24-hour period over the Easter holiday weekend.Tags: Naperville Police Department, Police Blotter
