A motorist who resisted arrest during a disturbance earlier this year outside a home in Naperville was convicted Tuesday of two of the five charges filed in that matter.
Nicholas J. Giannini, 23, of Lisle, pleaded guilty in DuPage County Circuit Court to charges of disorderly conduct/alarmed and disturbed and interfering with a city police officer. Court records showed companion counts of driving under the influence of alcohol, urinating or defecating in public and criminal trespass to a residence were dismissed in exchange for those pleas.
Associate Judge James J. Konetski accepted the pleas and placed Giannini on 18 months of conditional discharge, a form of probation, according to records.
Naperville police were called at 1:26 a.m. April 19 to a house on the 1000 block of Stone Court, in the Yorkshire Manor area of the city’s northeast side. That followed a 911 call concerning “an unwanted subject causing a disturbance in front of the caller’s residence,” police Sgt. Bill Davis said in April.
Police found Giannini walking from the rear of the house. Davis said the officers then discovered Giannini had urinated on an exterior wall of the home.
Davis said the officers concluded Giannini was “highly intoxicated,” and arrested him for DUI. “While being placed under arrest, Giannini actively resisted arrest and tried to pull away from the officers, to prevent being placed into handcuffs,” he said.
No one was injured during the scuffle.
Giannini also managed to lock himself out of his black, 2010 Infiniti G7, Davis said. He added Giannini did not say where he had been or where he was going that morning.
Court documents indicated Giannini has no criminal record in DuPage, Kane and Will counties.
