Wanted man arrested after tow truck dispute on I-80 shoulder: cops (IL)


Recommended Posts


State troopers responding to a report of a fight on the shoulder of Interstate 80 arrested a wanted man Wednesday morning, police said.


The report of the fight on the shoulder of I-80 just west of Wolf Road in New Lenox came in shortly before 7:30 a.m., Trooper Genelle Jones said in an email Monday morning.


"Preliminary investigation indicates a verbal altercation ensued between two parties regarding payment of tow services," Jones said.


"It was discovered one subject had a prior warrant for his arrest," Jones said. "The subject was taken into custody and transported to the Will County Detention Facility."


The state police did not identify either of the individuals allegedly involved in the incident on the interstate shoulder, but the only person booked into the Will County jail by the state police after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday was Patrick Petrillo, 31, of Mount Prospect, records show.
