THURSDAY, SEPT. 5
Frederick Alamilla, 19, of the 500 block of Brookside Drive, Westmont, was charged with minor in possession of alcohol by consumption. Alamilla was arrested after police responded at about 12:10 a.m. Sept. 5 to a verbal dispute in a parking lot on the 2200 block of Prentiss Drive, according to a police report. An anonymous caller said there was a man and woman having a loud argument outside a building. Police arrived and separated them.
"Clearly Alamilla was highly intoxicated, in that he was staggering, slurring his words, had bloodshot and glassy eyes and there was a strong odor of alcohol about him," the police report for this incident said. "He admitted that he was intoxicated and advised that he wanted his clothing back from (the woman) so he could leave."
The woman agreed to give Alamilla his bag of clothing so he could leave. Then police took him into custody, charged him and released him on an I-bond.
