A resident of the John F. Kennedy Terrace apartment building was arrested after he destroyed Halloween decorations and disturbed other residents by knocking on doors, police said.
About 7:40 p.m. Thursday, officers responded to the 2200 Oneida St. apartment building after receiving a report of a disturbance, according to a Joliet police news release.
When the officers arrived, they determined that Princeton Jones, 30, was destroying Halloween decorations on the walls and knocking on multiple doors, which disturbed other residents, police said.
“Jones became agitated and confrontational when residents told him to stop,” police said.
Officers located Jones inside the building and arrested him on probable cause of disorderly conduct, police said. Jones was released on his own recognizance.
Jones was previously arrested July 9 on a charge of misdemeanor criminal damage to property. Officers were called to to the 1515 W. Jefferson St. McDonald's that night and learned Jones had broken a Plexiglas screen at the drive-thru window, police said.
“Officers determined that Jones broke the screen after staff refused to take his food order due to Jones walking in the drive-thru lane,” police said.
Jones fled the area before the officers arrived, police said. He was located a short time later, arrested and later released on his own recognizance.
A warrant was issued for Jones’ arrest on Aug. 25 when he failed to show up to court, records show. He was briefly jailed on the warrant before he was released.
